Quinta do Correio

Quinta do Correio – From Portugal’s famous Quinta dos Roques Dão wine region producer comes this wonderful pair of white and red wines at a very modest price. Named after the old postal station in the foothill vineyards of the Serra da Estrella mountains, these wines provide a fresh and lively introduction to the more sophisticated blends that are aged in wood. Aged for only a short time in stainless steel tanks, these wines reflect the sense of fun and enjoyment displayed in the whimsical “postage stamp” label with its perforated edges. Correio makes up one-third of Roques 100 acres of vineyards that spread out over 12 plots in the area of Abrunhosa do Mato (between Nelas and Mangualde). The Correio vineyards and wines include most of the same varietals that are used in Roques and Maias.
