Casa de Vilacetinho

Region : Vinho Verde

Casa de Vilacetinho is located in Alpendorada which is in the Amarante sub region on the south of the Vinho Verde, where the Douro River actually crosses briefly through the region. Vilacetinho is a stunning 30 ha property that sits in a very different microclimate to Moncao e Melgaco in the north. Amarante is famous for producing Avesso and Arinto. Fortuitously Alpendorada sits almost on the edge of Amarante, Sousa and Baiao, which means they can source the top varieties from each of the three sub regions. Verdant growing conditions mean vine management is critical. Granitics soils produce wonderfully mineral wines.
