OUR PREMIUM PRODUCTS
COLINAS DO DOURO
The COLINAS do DOURO project was created in the heart of the International Douro Nature Park, at an elevation of 640 meters. This 450ha farm (quinta), with 106ha of vineyards, is situated at the abrupt transition between the Beira granite plateau and the first folds of schist of the Douro valley, surrounded by crags and escarpments.
With a vision of creating wines that transmit the unique character of the "UM DOURO SUPERIOR", we devote ourselves intensely and genuinely to our work, from sunrise to sunset, harvest after harvest.
Respecting and enhancing the incredibly rich local biodiversity, we want our wines to express, in their elegance, freshness and minerality, the essence of the "UM DOURO SUPERIOR”.
Global Wines is born from our passion for Portugal and for Portuguese wine. This patrimony has never been as wide-spread and as appreciated in the whole world as it is now. As a company, Global Wines is proud to be in the front lines of the promotion and defense of their patrimony.
We do so through our iconic brands from the Dão region (Cabriz and Casa de Santar) and with our ground-breaking brands such as Quinta do Encontro, our reinterpretation of the Alentejo region, with Monte da Cal and last but not least, our green wines.
