Quinta da Raza

Located inland in the verdant Vinho Verde region, Quinta da Raza is the home and life of Jose Diogo and Mafalda Teixeira Coelho. Quinta da Raza has a unique terroir created by the gentle slopes and magnificent exposure to the sun. The soil is granite bedrock with areas of schist and clay.  The microclimate created by the mountains in the west and the Tamega river valley prevent the influence of Atlantic winds resulting in less rain and a greater temperature range. The vineyards are subject to more sun than perhaps other vineyards in the Vinho Verde Region, which are important factors for the development of the vines. Moreover, the average altitude of Quinta da Raza is 820 feet, which corresponds to the best average altitude suited for growing grapes. In 1999 / 2000, significant improvements were introduced in the cellar, including new oenological and storage equipment. Incidentally, the bird which appears on the Raza label is the Lesser Kestrel, locally called “Peneireiro“.
