More information:
Legend has it that once upon a time, the central area of Mortágua in the district of Viseu was occupied by a lake that stretched accross five square kilometers of area. According to ancient testimony, the area had been inhabited by freshwater fish since the beginning of time. However, when the Moors arrived, the lake was drained, thus opening a breech in the stones of Alçaperna and causing the zone to dry up. The vegetation that grew spontaneously here after still characterizes the region today, consisting of a mixture of rosemary, lavender, heather, gorse and broom plants as well as European olive trees. From this historical background, the Quinta da Giesta estate in Mortágua was born under the dream of creating a wine that reflected the true beauty of the region. The quinta's terrain extends out to more than 8 hectares and is shielded from the harsh Atlantic winds by the Buçaco and Caramulo mountains, which create ideal conditions for sun exposure. The vines here live through a cold, humid winter climate, frequent frosts in the spring and hot, dry summers. With a median altitude of 200 meters, the soil is clay-based, well-structured and with a good capacity for retaining water.
