Monterrei Tinto, ‘Gorvia’, Quinta da Muradella

Just above the border of Portugal in northwest Spain, the region of Monterrei was part of an area whose rich geology was once prized by the Romans for mining, notably gold. Ancient findings have confirmed that the Romans are responsible for another of the area’s treasures, vineyards. Alanda is the first of several wines made by winemaker and proprietor Jose Luis Mateo. . At Quinta da Muradella, winemaker and proprietor Jose Luis and the highly respected Raul Perez, a consulting enologist, have done excellent work recuperating old vineyards and their efforts have earned accolades from wine publications including The Wine Advocate and Guia Peñin, the most influential and prestigious wine guide in Spain.
