+17 traditional Douro white grape varieties
The Canivéis, is a set of plots located in the parish of Carlão where we find the soils of transition from schist to granite. This vineyard shows a rare composition of more than 17 traditional Douro white grape varieties. The result is a unique wine that excites for what is unexplored in the Douro and for the conservation and durability of this Douro that, although undervalued, for us has as much or more value!
