Quinta das Maias

Located just 30 kilometers from Roques winery, Maias comprises 86 contiguous acres at an elevation of 1500 to 1800 feet in the foothills of the Serra da Estrela mountains, providing excellent daily temperature variation for ripening the 5-30 year old vines. The average yearly rainfall of 1400 mm is more than double that of London, but fortunately mostly during the winter, rather than increasing the risk of damage to grapes at harvest time.
