Ribeiro Santo

Quinta do Ribeiro Santo estate, located in Carregal Sal, is a property acquired and restored by the winemaker Carlos Lucas, with the aim of producing wines with his own personality.

It was an ancient property of the local priest, surrounded by a stream where water flows all year round, so it was named "Quinta do Ribeiro Santo", which means "Holly River Estate".

The vineyard is planted with the local varieties, such as Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Tinto Cão and Encruzado, which were planted in poor ground granite, with large rocky outcrops, which overlooks the Serra da Estrela.

The vineyard is planted in an integrated production system, revealing great concern with the environmental issues. The combination of cultural practices associated with the careful use of organic products that respect the environmentally, originates a balanced production.
