50% Albarino and 50% Loureiro. Joana told me that this is her first time experimenting with malolaction fermentation in her wines. The Albarino has gone through 100% malolactic fermentation while the Loureiro has not. I asked her if she had plans to adjust her approach but she is happy with the result! The layered texture and overall creaminess adds more complexity to the wine.

Quinta De Santiago Description

Alvarinho and Loureiro grapes exclusively from the special parcel “PISCO”. Soil clay in alluvial terraces, closest to the river. Soft pressing, natural decanting. Co-fermentation of Alvarinho and Loureiro juice in inox. Aging follows with 4 months on top of fine lees.

Quinta de Santiago is a family-owned farm spanning 7.5 hectares (18.5 acres) along the banks of the Minho River in the Monção and Melgaço sub-region of Vinho Verde. It has been in the Santiago family since 1899. For about 100 years, Quinta de Santiago's main activity was the production of wines, olive oil, lupine, cereals, milk, meat, and fruit for self-consumption. Grapes grown in the vineyards were sold to large cooperatives in the region. This changed in 2009 and from the passion and determination of then owner, Grandma Mariazinha Santiago (age 86), her children, and grandchildren, a boutique winery was born.

At the head of the family's winery is Joana Santiago, a self-described “authentic Minho woman” - driven to honor her family's heritage. It is from a multi-generation devotion to the family's land and vineyards that the special qualities of Quinta de Santiago are rooted. Santiago family combine tradition, modernity, and enthusiasm to create authentic wines expressing the terroir of the region's and farm's native varietals.
