Quinta de Covela
At the end of the 1980s, Quinta de Covela was acquired by businessman Nuno Araújo who invested heavily in the estate’s vines and wines, and created the brand Covela. Over the next years, the wines gained a reputation nationally and internationally with their modern labels and distinct blends. Finally, in 2007, with the classification as a biodynamic producer, Covela cemented its place among the vanguard of winemakers in Portugal.
The Böcking family has lived, loved and passed down the tradition of wine making, along with portions of four steep-slope vineyards, to successive generations. It is their experience and dedication, combined with decades-old vines growing on rich, mineral soils, that allow the family to continue to produce the finest Mosel Riesling wines.
