Quinta da Raza is a family business that has gone through four centuries, still to this day in the Teixeira Coelho family, nowadays in the hands of Diogo Teixeira Coelho, the fifth generation. Their commitment and dedication to the vineyard and to wine has fermented this passion and knowledge over time.
It has around 50 hectares of vineyards, located in Lugar de Peneireiros in the Basto Sub-region (DOC), in the heart of the Vinho Verde Demarcated Region.
With a favoured location within the Minho Region, it has a microclimate influenced by the river Tâmega and the Serra do Marão, which intersect the Atlantic winds. Raza’s vineyards grow here with the care and conditions that this unique region so generously offers.
With magnificent sun exposure, an altitude of 250 metres and soils of granite origin with clay-schist areas, uncommon in the Vinho Verde Region, the Quinta da Raza vineyard has a unique terroir, with the vineyard noted for the quality of the grapes produced here, ranging from Azal, Arinto, Avesso, Vinhão and Trajadura to Alvarinho.
Quinta da Raza aims for a natural balance with the surrounding natural environment, preserving biodiversity and promoting this symbiosis, which is reflected in an integrated environmental production system.
Quinta da Raza wines preserve traditional techniques such as hand picking, treading red grapes in centuries-old stone tanks and cross-generational knowledge of the production of these unique and delicate wines, with the help of modern, bold, innovative and future-ready technology.
