Manuel Pereira de Melo began the project in 1990 under the technical orientation of Anselmo Mendes, one of the most prestigious Portuguese oenologist who meanwhile extended the technical team to his collaborator, the oenologist Patrícia Santos, who has been developing a remarkable work.
Located in Santa Comba Dão, in the Dão region and surrounded by the mountains of Estrela, Caramulo and Lousã, Quinta do Coladinho is a place that reveals a unique sense and characteristics that combine in a rare balance. This is an area with the capacity of producing wines with great longevity, some with the ability to reach 100 years and more.
Working with nature and its unpredictability, in just two hectares of vineyards, we create harvests with the least human intervention possible. Our concern with the preservation of the environment made us opt for rigorous and demanding processes that limit the type of products for the vine treatments.
The knowledge of a highly qualified team allows us to develop a thorough vine work in total respect for biodiversity, a careful selection of grapes and a serious and skilful vinification process, always driven by our commitment to excellence.
