Winemaker's Notes:

Casa de Santar is proud to present distinctive and elegant wines, as a result of the careful vinification of Dão's Ex-Libris three red grapes - Touriga-Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Tinta-Roriz. Just right with red meat dishes, pasta, wild game and cheese.
My Notes:

About Casa de Santar:

Associated to Paco dos Cunhas de Santar is Sociedade Agrícola de Santar, a manor house of the XVII and XVIIi Centuries. Surrounded by hedges, boxwoods and labyriths of flowers, is a perfectly preserved cellar.

Built in granite, with its historical tiles, it houses in an ancient environment, the most modern and advanced technologies. Top quality wines are produced here, in a 400 year-old structure.

In the balcony of the tasting room, you can taste wines of different ages. Next to the cellar the acclaimed vineyards are surrounded by pine trees and chestnut groves. The high-quality grape varieties produce the acclaimed white and red wines of Casa de Santar, that range from all market requirements, and also the Late Harvest, for dessert.

In 2007, Sociedade Agrícola de Santar, with its Casa de Santar wines, was elected Producer of the Year, by Revista de Vinhos (Portugal).
