The excellence of Vinho Verde.

The grape varieties we favor are Alvarinho, Loureiro, Arinto, Avesso and Vinhão.

The Vinho Verde region is a unique demarcated region in the world with approximately 20,000 ha of planted vineyards.

It has around 20,000 producers with plots smaller than 1ha. It is a mountainous region that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the mountain massif that borders the Douro. The average rainfall in the region is between 1,200 and 1,600 mm/m2.


The Vinhos Verdes region has 20 white varieties and 17 red varieties recommended or permitted to produce DOC wines. The soils in the region are essentially granite, with a sandy, sandy loam texture, with some patches of shale and clay.

More than 50 hectares of vineyards that express the best that nature has to offer.

Quinta da Calçada is located in the historic centre of the city of Amarante, 40 minutes from Porto

It is located in the sub-region of Amarante, in the Vinhos Verdes region, approximately 10 minutes from the entrance to the Douro region. This sub-region is characterized by granite soils, with some mixtures of shale, and Atlantic influence, producing wines that are markedly mineral, with high freshness and great gastronomic potential.


The remarkable extent of vineyards – more than 50 hectares with varying ages that extend back to the beginning of the 20th century – allows us to interpret the different terroirs. Among these lands we proudly count a legacy of the rich history of Quinta da Calçada. We are talking about a plot of vineyard that is certified as the oldest in the Vinhos Verdes region – 0.5 hectares of extreme vineyard positioned on a single terrace.


Quinta da Calçada has always established itself in the production of quality wines, focusing on the interpretation of terroir wines, specializing in white wines.


The Estate

At Quinta da Calçada we adopt a viticulture of non-intervention and respect for nature. In the winery we mainly use traditional winemaking techniques, always trying to respect the expression of the fruit. This philosophy fits into the Sustainability policy that we put into practice every day in the various activities of our company.

The wines are a reflection of our interpretation of the vineyards, focusing on the consumer and moment of consumption.


When it comes to the selection of grape varieties, we remained faithful to those that define the demarcated region of Vinho Verde. They are: Alvarinho, Loureiro, Arinto, Avesso and Vinhão.



The technology in our cellar is adapted to our production focus: white and rosé wines.

We focus on growing the fruit: choosing the optimal ripening point, harvesting and manually selecting the grapes by type of wine and carefully transporting them to the winery.


The oenological techniques we use are based on the preservation and respect of fruit in nature, exploring the subtleties it offers us, and which we seek to reflect in the wines we produce.
