About the Event
We are pleased to be hosting this event together with Holy Wines and the owner and wine maker of Quinta de Soalheiro - António Luís Cerdeira.
Quinta de Soalheiro was the first Alvarinho brand in Melgaço, and one of the first Portuguese producers of Alvarinho. The Monção e Melgaço sub-region is protected by a range of mountains that create the perfect conditions of rainfall, temperature and number of hours of sunshine needed to ripen the Alvarinho grapes. This very special microclimate led João Antonio Cerdeira to plant the first Alvarinho vine in 1974 and to create, in 1982, Quinta de Soalheiro. While pursuing the values of innovation, unconventionality, responsibility and excellence, it’s the passion for vines and wines and the respect for their terroir that contribute to the continuous development of Soalheiro. Led by a multidisciplinary, proactive and highly motivated team, Soalheiro treads the path towards new challenges, attaining international recognition on its way. From its pioneering creation by João António Cerdeira in 1982 in Melgaço, to this day, its focus on quality has always been present, together with a determination to improve with each harvest.
Today, third-generation family members, siblings Maria João and António Luís, along with their mother Maria Palmira Cerdeira, have embraced this spirit of innovation. António Luís, with a graduate degree in oenology, has built a profound knowledge of the Alvarinho grape variety throughout his life. Maria João, a veterinarian by profession, assumed the responsibility for viticulture and successfully introduced organic farming into their vineyards.
This year Soalheiro celebrated 40 years from their first 1982 iconic vintage.
