Carlos Lucas is the man behind the wine, first and foremost a farmer, but now a very talented winemaker with over 25 years of experience across Portugal. He started the estate 15 years ago on an ancient property once owned by the local priest.
A stream encircles this quaint vineyard providing protection from the vast neighbouring pine, eucalyptus and oak forest. It surrounds the poor granite soils, perfect for viticulture, and has given it the name “Quinta do Ribeiro Santo” which means “Holy River Estate”. The vineyard is planted following the traditional plantation methods, in poor granite soils, with large schist outcrops, where you can have a magnificent perspective of the highness of the Mountain Serra da Estrela.
