The Quinta da Calçada cellars were founded in 1917, focusing on quality wines and sparkling wines. Calcada Wine Estates also owns a farm in the demarcated region of Douro, UNESCO World Heritage. LAGO wines capture the all the freshness of the region combined with the aromatic exuberance of its grape varieties. Wines that are fruity and captivating!

    Vineyard

    Vineyards are located throughout the sub-region of Amarante within Vinho Verde; a brief 40 minutes from Oporto and 15 minutes from the entrance to Douro Valley. Because of this location at higher altitude, the vines enjoy a diverse microclimate and distinctive terroir. Wide swings between day and night temperatures result in longer hang time and more even ripening for the grapes.

    Soil

    Mainly granite with a mix of schist.

    Viticulture

    Hand harvested at the perfect maturation point from different parcels and immediately processed at our wine cellar.

    Vinification

    Grapes are crushed and fermented in stainless steel vats with controlled temperature. Before bottling, the wine is filtered and stabilized.

    Aging

    3 months in a mix of French and American oak

    Tasting Notes

    Fruit notes such as prunes, strawberries and black berries and light nuances of cedar box, tobacco and cocoa powder. Full-bodied on the mouth with soft and engaging tannins that result in a fresh and persistent finish.
