Da Cruz & Teles

DA CRUZ & TELES, Lisboa ~ Organic

A partnership between Tiago Teles (Gilda, RAIZ) and António Marques-da-Cruz (Quinta da Serradinha), started in 2015. Pioneers in the introduction of organic agriculture and the new concepts of pruning and soil fertilization in Serra de Montejunto, they initiated an important transformation of practices and mentalities in mountain viticulture. They work 6 historic vineyards of the autochthonous white variety Vital as well as some Arinto and Castelao, developing detailed viticulture and heritage conservation. In addition to the recovery of life in the soils and the return of biodiversity, the work includes the recovery of the genetic heritage of vineyards and ancient Portuguese grape varieties.
