This month we received the well known team Charles Metcalf and Kathryn McWhirter at the winery in preparation of the new version of the book "The Food and Wine Lover’s Guide to Portugal".
It was a very nice morning to visit the Estate and taste the Quinta do Francês Wines with Charles and Kathryn.
We discussed about the improvement of the quality of our wine since the first Quinta do Francês Red 2006 and Charles has been impressed by the 2008 who is still in oak for more 6 month. "How is that possible with a so young vineyard!" Charles said.
After the Silver medal in the International Wine Challenge of London this year with the Quinta do Francês Red 2007, it is very encouraging to continue working rigorously to definitively enter in the Great wines world.
