Quinta da Serradinha's Encruzado e Arinto white wine is a harmonious melody played out amidst the rolling hills of Leiria. Here, the vines, planted in 1957, bask on south-facing slopes, cradled by the Encostas de Aire DOC. The Atlantic Ocean whispers its cool influence, bringing high rainfall and refreshing morning breezes. These contrasting forces orchestrate a slow, patient maturation, allowing the Encruzado and Arinto grapes to retain their vibrant acidity and complex aromas.

Sustainability is the guiding principle at Quinta da Serradinha. Since 1994, long before it became commonplace, organic practices have nurtured the 6 hectares of vines. The clay-limestone soil, rich in nutrients, provides a sturdy foundation for the roots to delve deep, drawing upon the unique character of the land. Every step of the harvest is guided by a respect for nature, ensuring a healthy ecosystem and grapes bursting with potential.

The focus on indigenous varieties is a cornerstone of Quinta da Serradinha's philosophy. Encruzado, known for its crisp acidity and minerality, finds a perfect partner in Arinto, a grape that sings with floral notes and a touch of roundness. Together, they create a captivating blend, a testament to the careful selection that goes into each bottle.

Quinta da Serradinha

Within the Leiria area of Portugal, Quinta da Serradinha whispers a tale of five generations. Here, António Marquês da Cruz, the current custodian, carries the torch of a family deeply rooted in viticulture. Since 1957, their vines have thrived under the influence of the Encostas de Aire DOC. The Atlantic whispers tales of cool mornings and high rainfall, balanced by the warmth of dry summers. These contrasting forces create a canvas of slow, patient maturation, allowing grapes to retain their aromatic complexity.

Sustainability is woven into the very fabric of Quinta da Serradinha. Long before organic practices became mainstream, in 1994, they embraced this philosophy. Their 6 hectares of vines flourish in clay-limestone soil, basking on south-facing slopes. Here, nature reigns supreme, with organic methods guiding every step of the harvest.

The heart of Quinta da Serradinha beats with a focus on indigenous grape varieties. Baga and Tinta Miúda, the quintessential reds of the region, find their place alongside Alfrocheiro, Touriga Nacional, and Castelão. For whites, Arinto and Fernão Pires offer their refreshing charm.

Discovered in 2005 by Goliardos, a renowned Portuguese wine collective, Quinta da Serradinha's wines stood out from the crowd. High acidity and firm tannins, characteristics that might raise eyebrows in some circles, became their signature. This unwavering commitment to natural expression resonated with Goliardos' philosophy, a perfect match for a family steeped in tradition.

Over the years, António has further refined his craft. The resulting wines are bottled only in select vintages, ensuring exceptional quality. Each sip is a journey of authenticity, a testament to the vinous spirit of the land. The unique profile reflects not just the meticulous techniques employed but also the warmth and generosity that embodies António himself. Quinta da Serradinha is more than a winery; it's a legacy in a bottle, a story whispered through generations, and a testament to the beauty of embracing nature's rhythm.
