At Quinta do Ferro, the focus was on autochthonous varieties, thus producing only Portuguese grapes, they are Avesso, a native variety of Gestaçô Baião, a unique and original white grape, with a strong and complex personality. Arinto, a white grape planted all over the country, aromatic, fresh, with good acidity and minerality. And finally, a grape that is often misunderstood, the vine, a red and dyer grape, with a strong nature, planted mainly in the north of the country, and which in our vineyard loses its typical roughness, and gains elegance and softness, due to the characteristics of our vineyards. terroir.


Our 2 main vineyards, are under a special microclimate and are of granitic soil, which gives it minerality, salinity and a vegetal touch, one vineyard is at almost 400 meters of altitude, known for being the riverine vineyard, the other is at more than 600 meters of altitude, considered to be a mountain vineyard. This is our main vineyard, the mountain vineyard, and it is from here that the grapes for our sparkling wine are harvested, it has the fundamental characteristics for a good sparkling wine base, the grapes here naturally have the perfect alcohol and acidity to make sparkling wine.

Quality - "If we add a good natural product to the business experience, we will be able to do a good job".

Innovation - QUINTA DO FERRO's intention was to provide the entire operation with the most modern technical solutions, in order to obtain the highest quality at lower costs.



Assessment - Vinho Verde is a product directly and naturally derived from regional constraints and without technological artifices. Hence, its technology is extremely simple, as it is integrated into a stable set, which underlies its claim to be what the vineyard produces.


A correct technique, which may seem simplistic to those who are unprepared, is limited, in addition to total hygiene of the cellar and the winemaking material - and therein lies much of its refinement, to seek to guarantee the best conditions for the favorable regional zymological flora of work.


The great improvement of wines has to be done in the vineyard, for its judicious implantation, for the careful choice of the best varieties for each specific case that is faced, for the care of cultivation and for a technology well understood and applied.


As for the wine production process at QUINTA DO FERRO, there is a strong team to which prestigious winemakers belong who ensure the quality of the product, carrying out regular tests and tastings, based on the latest state-of-the-art technology. It was necessary to carry out the earthworks of the entire area of ​​the farm, since the previously existing vineyards were obsolete and were arranged in terraces.


The initial idea was to provide the entire operation with the most modern technical solutions, in order to obtain the highest quality at lower costs. The next step was to improve more and more the vinification equipment and increase the product distribution network.


QUINTA DO FERRO sparkling wine required a heavy investment, mainly because it was necessary to acquire a cold room to proceed with at least nine months of maturation, in addition to other essential equipment in the production of a good sparkling wine using only the classic method.
