O Bétula 2009, vinho branco de Catarina Montenegro (sobrinha da São Foy) recebeu um bela critica da Maria João de Almeida:
Bétula branco 2009 (Douro) – Catarina Montenegro (Provado em Janeiro de 2011)
No aroma revela notas de fruta tropical madura, apontamentos vegetais e alguma especiaria. No paladar é cativante e envolvente, revelando fruta de qualidade e mineralidade que lhe dá elegância. Boa acidez e madeira bem integrada. Muito gastronómico.
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.
