Quinta do Paral Branco
Quinta do Paral is located near Vidigueira in the heart of Portugal and is spread out over 100 hectares of land. With its gently rolling hills and vast openness, the Alentejo region offers a truly unique landscape. Its true potential however lies deeper: fertile clay, granite and slate soils as well as a unique microclimate create optimal conditions for a unique terroir. The excellent quality of the grape varieties allows us to produce high quality wines that express the distinctive character of the Alentejo.
With the acquisition of Quinta do Paral by entrepreneur Dieter Morszeck, the winery was realigned in collaboration with chief enologist Luís Morgado Leão and the autochthonous varieties of 40 year old vines experienced a renaissance. Today, the winery focuses on sustainability and craftsmanship combined with great respect for the Alentejo culture. Manual picking, natural grape care and strict yield reduction ensure the high quality of the wines.
Our winemaker Luis has selected four grape varieties for the cuvee, that perfectly interpret the vintage and variety of the terroir from granite to lime and slate.
The white wines have a fine maturity with hints of apple, citrus and blossoms and a delicate mineral nature. Complex aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple and passion fruit, combined with the fresh tangerine zest. It’s a balanced, elegant and
fresh wine with a good persistence.
