Rita started to plan Jardins de Granito winery 6 years ago after a long journey around the wine world, together with Vasco her husband, who as an oncologist researched the benefits and possible uses in health as a by-product of wine. The team is completed by Mafalda Magalhães who is a highly respected internationally renowned winemaker.
Dão terroir is marked by the constant presence of granite. Respecting the wine tradition of Dão, “Jardim de Granito” is produced on the slopes of Silgueiros, in soils of granite origin, where the vineyard is surrounded by oak trees & pine forests.
This wine has been created to express the elegance & gastronomic heritage of the region. Bright ruby in colour, with red berry aromas & balanced tannins which provides a full mouthfeel. Restrained and elegant.
