IN HARMONY WITH NATURE
Mr. José Neiva Correia born and raised in the family home, among the vineyards of the single estate Quinta de Porto Franco and soon realized that the greatest and best goal is to be in harmony with nature to help the vines create the best grapes.
There’s no place for chemical products in the soils. We use organic matter only, selected according to the soil, residual water characteristics, climate, grape varieties and the wine that is intended to be produced.
All organic matter is pre-analyzed to verify that it is suitable and also to avoid heavy metals and other pollutants negative for the plants and for the environment.
The nutrition of the vines is monitored closely, without excesses or shortages being the nutrient needs of the various vines carefully measured.
We don't irrigate our 200ha of vineyards in Lisboa or Tejo wine regions.
We use mechanical processes to control weeds.
