Producer: Casa Ferreirinha
Casa Ferreirinha was the first Douro producer dedicated entirely to making table wines, rather than Port. Its origins date back to 1952 when Fernando Nicolau de Almeida produced the first ever vintage of Barca-Velha and kickstarted the quality revolution in Douro table wines. Named after the legendary Dona Antónia Ferreira, one of the formidable widows of the world of wine, Casa Ferreirinha pays homage to the memory of this visionary woman. Today, the winemaking team is headed up by Luís Sottomayor, who restrains the Douro’s natural exuberance to produce wines that have a vibrant freshness allied to a lovely texture and depth.
Lemon yellow in colour with golden lights. On the nose, intense floral notes stand out with a hint of tropical fruit and earthy tones. On the palate this wine is full-bodied with a long and fragrant finish. A delicious crisp dry white wine and something different.
Food Matches: Recommended as an aperitif or with light meals, salads and grilled fish.
