Quinta Da Murta

Wine Explorers' opinion

Quinta Da Murta is a small paradise of 27 hectares, lost in the hills of Bucelas. Notice to fans, you can even book the place for your wedding.

The terroir

The unique terroir of Bucelas, with its limestone and marl soils, and a south-east facing hill, is ideal for the production of fresh and tense wines.

The estate

Quinta da Murta is in the hands of the very friendly Frenchman Franck Bodin. The estate is surrounded by the main Roman road crossing Portugal, next to the last northern Anglo-Portuguese fortification against Napoleon's troops.

The vineyard

Quinta Da Murta favors biodynamics and natural winemaking, using indigenous yeasts. The grass grows naturally between the vine rows. Only the horse manure of the neighbors is used to improve the vineyard.

The wines

The vineyard, nicknamed the "prince of Portuguese wine", is famous for its dry white wine made of Arinto. A variety cultivated locally by the Romans for 2,000 years and which was the only white wine in Portugal for centuries.
