Quinta do Monte d’Oiro

#QMdO

Quinta do Monte d'Oiro – this winery is located in the Lisbon region, near the town of Torres Vedras, between the lonely mountain Serra de Montejunto and the rocky coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The regional classification of its wines/appellation is IG LISBOA. The combination of a lime and clay soil, a Mediterranean microclimate, an Atlantic freshness, and a permanently blowing wind, creates the unique conditions for grapes that have a moderate alcohol level, natural acidity and smooth tannins. Quinta do Monte d'Oiro’s wine-growing philosophy is pure organic grapevines, respect for the environment and biodiversity, soils that are alive, and very low production yields (20-35 hl/ha). Quinta do Monte d'Oiro offers terroir labels (LYBRA, MADRIGAL and QUINTA DO MONTE D’OIRO RESERVA) as well as signature wines from its owner, such as TÊMPERA by José Bento dos Santos, AURIUS by José Bento dos Santos, EX AEQUO by José Bento dos Santos and SYRAH 24 by José Bento dos Santos. These wines have received international recognition, collecting up to 94 points in "Wine Enthusiast Magazine" and up to 95 points in Robert Parker’s ranking. Reds QMdO RESERVA 2013 and QMdO SYRAH 24 (2013) won the award "The best wines of 2017" from "Grandes Escolhas" magazine in March 2018.  Wines from Quinta do Monte d'Oiro symbolize an organic splendour.
