The Encosta da Vinha White Dão 2016 is produced at Sociedade Agrícola Boas Quintas. It all began when Nuno Cancela de Abreu, representative of the 4th generation of a family with farming and winemaking tradition of more than 130 years, decided to devote all of his experience and all of his knowledge in viticulture and oenology, to the service of the project that would allow him to create high-quality wines, full of character and personality. Due to the positive reception from critics and with the contribution of awards won since 1998, the company reoriented its strategy, surpassing its original family character. In 2010, Boas Quintas witnessed the extension of its area of production to other regions, asserting itself, as of this date, as a multi-regional project combining, among others, three major Estates.
With the plurality of wine regions, the philosophy of Boas Quintas is based on diversity and, therefore, believes that each wine carries its own nature and identity. Nuno Cancela de Abreu was recognized as “Winemaker of the Year 2016” by Aníbal Coutinho and Boas Quintas was awarded the “Company of the Year 2016” by Revista de Vinhos.
The Encosta da Vinha White Dão has a pale green colour and a citric and mineral aroma, this is a fresh wine with crisp flavours and a great balance.
