Chegou o outono que quase parece inverno. Frio, chuvoso, cinzento, maravilhoso. As videiras ainda têm muitas folhas e a cor apenas começa a mudar. Mas a cor da paisagem é térrea, castanha e verde de erva fresca e de solo cavado.
I am back home from 4 extraordinary days at the EUROPEAN WINE BLOGGERS CONFERENCE 2009. I feel almost like a blogger!!! I do not have a single photo (big mistake) but my head is full of the faces present. Many thanks to the organizers, sponsors, participants. sao
Terrus is a red wine from the Douro region in Portugal. It is produced by Maria da Assunção Foy who inherited 10 hectares of land in 2000 and set about creating a successfully functioning vineyard and winery. The first year of production was 2005, so it is a relatively young wine but already it has been garnering positive praise.
Given the small size of the vineyard, production is restricted to no more than 4000 bottles a year, but this also means that great care is given to the smallest details, from planting to bottling. This is not just a small business but also a labour or love.
The Terrus enologist is award-winning Francisco Montenegro.
We welcome visitors to the vineyard, either on day visits or longer stays as we have two small houses to rent out for short breaks.
