Quinta São Gião Alvarinho is a wine with a distinct character that results from a winemaking process with pre-fermentative skin maceration and 6 months aging in fine lees. A small part aged in French oak barrels. Structured and complex, with subtle hints of minerals and spices that complement the traditional essence of the Alvarinho variety.
Quinta São Gião is a family estate located in the municipality of Guimarães. The Almeida Freitas family has been a producer/bottler since 1972 and its connection to the production of vinho verde and to the vineyards care is one of the pillars of our activity. Our wines are produced with our own grapes, in an integrated production system, from 32 hectares of vineyards plus 8 hectares of recently planted new vines.
