Sparkling Wine Quinta do Gradil Maria do Carmo

Quinta do Gradil Espumante Maria do Carmo

Rosé

The sparkling rosé Magnum de Touriga Nacional revealed so much vitality and personality that we decided to honor it with the name of Maria do Carmo, the heiress of Quinta do Gradil who, in the middle of the 19th century, indelibly marked the history of this property and the region. Dona Maria do Carmo Romeiro da Fonseca was born in Sanguinhal in 1829 in the midst of a family closely linked to the region and to the production and trade of wine. At the age of twenty, due to her mother's death, she inherited Quinta do Gradil, a property that she knew how to increase and develop over time. 1854 becomes a reference year in the history of this house as it marks its passage from Casal to Quinta.

Viticulture The soils are clayey in nature, with some sandy-clay patches and good drainage. The wide slopes at the foot of the Serra de Montejunto provide excellent sun exposure and its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean gives it a natural acidity.
