Humus, Encosta da Quinta. Alvorninha, Lisboa

Humus

Located an hour drive north from Lisbon, in the outskirts of the town of Alvorninha, after a winding road you end up in this incredible traditional Portuguese old Paço, which is 10 minutes away from the seaside. The Quinta was bought by Rodrigo’s grandfather, but his father was the one who planted the first vines on the slopes in the 90’s. Rodrigo Felipe, in the early 2000’s, after working as a civil engineer, decided to start making wine and became a winemaker. He works 9 hectares of vines that belong to a total of 20 hectares of the family’s property of Quinta do Paço. Soil is a mix of clay and limestone, benefitting from the cool Atlantic breeze and high humidity of the area. This provides the grapes with a high level of natural acidity that allows Rodrigo to make these bold wines. Organic certified since 2007, however, it is not until 2009 that Rodrigo made his first Humus wine. In the vineyard he uses natural compost and small quantities of copper and sulphur, just when it is required. In the cellar there is minimum intervention, with no sulphites added, unfiltered and unclarified. The red grapes planted are; Castelao, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca and Syrah, and for whites; Vital, Fernão Pires, Arinto and a bit of Sauvignon Blanc.
