About ADEGA PONTE DA BARCA
Our vineyards are located in the Lima Valley in the North of Portugal, bordering the Minho River and Galicia, Spain, to the North the Atlantic Ocean to the West. Our region is often associated with the green of the natural landscape. It is a region of deep valleys crossed by clear water streams and a rugged terrain of enormous beauty and biodiversity. This unique and traditional landscape is marked by small vineyards and quaint villages.
The cooling influence of the Atlantic Ocean and the granitic soils produce elegant wines with delicate aromas and freshness.
Winemaker, José Oliveira has been working in the region for more than 25 years. Born and raised in Ponte da Barca, wine was always his passion.
Literally meaning "green wine", the Vinho Verde name actually refers to it being a wine usually drunk "young." The Las Lilas wines’ low alcohol content and slight effervescence make them excellent as an aperitif or for an afternoon spent in the backyard.
