Our selection in Bairrada
Quinta Colinas de São Lourenço
QUINTA COLINAS DE S. LOURENÇO, the first property to be incorporated in the Group's assets, is a modern and model estate, symbolising the origin of IDEALDRINKS.
Purchased in 2009, the extensive property is located in São Lourenço do Bairro, in Anadia, in the heart of Bairrada, a winegrowing region par excellence and among IDEALDRINKS's favourites. The property has limy-clayey soil where 80 hectares of vine grows over the gentle hills of the region, which bear the same name.
The vineyard, that was completely remodelled and replanted with several national and international grape varieties - Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Arinto -,allows the production of a wide and diversified range of products, including red wines, pink wines, white wines and sparkling wines.
The farm's wine cellar, recently built in accordance with the best examples worldwide, resorts to the latest vinification technology for doing all the handling of liquids and masses through gravity. The wide rooms for aging, equipped with the best casks of French oak, gather the ideal conditions for the quiet rest of the wines that normally also age in bottle for several years. The reserve wines destined to the production of sparkling wines also age in these rooms in imposing reserve tuns.
The tradition of Bairrada Terroir and the know-how of IDEALDRINKS team are here combined with the modernity of the vineyard and the vinification processes creating wines and sparkling wines of high complexity and elegance, presented through a rich and wide portfolio that includes the brands Principal, Colinas and São Lourenço.
