Quinta da Lixa

Est. 1986

Vinho Verde, in north-western Portugal, is a region of rivers and mountains, valleys and plains.Granite soils influence both the vines and the architecture in the region.

Quinta da Lixa is a modern, state of the art facility, with winemaker Carlos Teixera at the helm. Beyond making wines that express its exceptional terroir, Quinta da Lixa prioritizes conservation and eco-stewardship. The entire vineyard area, 105 hectares, is managed via an Integrated Production System. Natural methods are also preferred in the cellar, for example using gravity for the passage of wine (rather than electricity).

Quinta da Lixa strives to lay a foundation for grape growing and winemaking for the future. The Monverde hotel allows guests to experience Quinta da Lixa’s wines and expansive vineyard views, Portuguese art and cuisine.

Traditional flavors one would expect from a well made Alvarinho from the Minho region. A floral nose with hints of lemon curd and ginger, flavors of lemon, lime, grapefruit, and apricot on the palate. A lovely hint of salinity makes this a perfect wine for seafood.
