"A wine that is 100% Baga, fermented in stainless steel without any oak. As a result, it is wonderfully balanced and fruit driven."

Ataíde Semedo is an assistant to Alvaro Castro in the Dao and that he had made some of the best wines in Bairrada, having previously owned Quinta da Dona and Quinta da Rigodeira from 1987. It was there he made his name and forged a new concept in making fresher more delicate winesintheregion. Having sold those Quintas in 2002, Ataíde bought a 5-hectare vineyard he had admired for sometime due to its location and soil. The soil here is a mixture of limestone and clay and all the work is done by hand. He farms as organically as possible, but with wet Autumns common in the region there can be the occasional preventative treatment used to avoid losing a vintage.
