Quinta da Boavista

Located in Penalva do Castelo in the Dão, a region in north-central Portugal known for producing elegant, mineral-driven red wines, João Tavares de Pina of Quinta da Boavista is extremely proud of his wines. João’s 18th century family home is surrounded by his organically maintained vineyards, where the distance from the Atlantic and the shelter of the nearby granite mountains allows for mild winters and moderate summers. The vineyards, located at an altitude of 550 meters are a combination of deep granite soils, clay and schist that are ideal for his prized Jaen (Mencía), Touriga Nacional and rare Pinheira (Rufete).
