DOC Dão White

The delicate peach blossom featured on the label is our way of transmitting the delightful floral and stone fruit aromas within, a scent we adore! So now, when friends lounge on our terrace overlooking the Serra de Estrela mountains, while nibbling on pan roasted almonds, we have a fabulous way to reinvigorate sunset conversations well into the morning.

In the valley of Dão river lays Silgueiros region which dates back to 4000 years. Traces left by the Romans and Moors show that the wine was produced here long before the Christ. The Latin word “Silicarios” means a rocky region and indeed soils here are poor. This is the place where on small plots of land on 400m of altitude the growers take care of vines. Prunus is an expression of that work. Hand-picked grapes by families and neighbors, blended by us, give enchanting wine.
