Douro Valley, Portugal
The family has been producing Port wine in the Pinhão valley for more than 100 years, but it has been in the Douro at least since 1477, when the King D. Afonso V granted a portion of land (Comenda de Oliveira) to the noble D. Afonso de Mansilha. Later in 1756, Frei João de Mansilha played a very important role in the demarcation of the Douro and its implementation. Their knowledge and will has in its origin several generations of people that dedicated their lives to the region and to its most important wine. Drinking a glass of these Ports is drinking through the history of a region. These Port wines are elegant, fresh, approachable and really pleasant wines.
