STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

While the Dão is one of the oldest wine regions in Portugal, historically it was also underperforming. That is until producers like Quinta dos Roques came along and led a revolution. With a focus on getting the best out of what the region has to offer, they are now considered masters at crafting meticulously assembled blends from indigenous grapes. Correio, translates as "Post" and is named after the postman who once owned the site. As a forerunner to online shopping, he delivered his wine locally with the post. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
