Vinhos Norte Winery, Established in 1971

Vinhos Norte Winery was set up in 1971 and produces wines in the heart of Vinho Verde. Presently, the third generation of the family runs the winery, and it is 100% Portuguese family business. Their first bottling line was set up in 1981, and they expanded many of their facilities in 1985. Vinhos Norte’s facilities reflect their mission of achieving the best quality and taste in their wines by using the natural resources of their region. Their winemaking ability, bottling lines, and state-of-the-art modern equipment make them a competitive and vital brand in the country’s wine business.

The third generation of the family at Vinhos Norte runs the winery, a fully Portuguese family business.

 

Preservation of the Vineyards

Antonio Carvalho and Domingos Carvalho are responsible for the work in the vineyards. They use organic methods to preserve the nature around them and the health of their vines. The rainfall, temperature, and soil are perfect in the region for the cultivation of vines. The main types of grapes grown in their vineyards include Loureiro, Arinto, Trajadura, and Alvarinho. The workers at Vinhos Norte pick the best grapes and use them to produce their world-class white wines.

 

The Winery Wins the Social Responsibility Award

At Vinhos Norte, there is a lot of importance to social responsibility in their winemaking. In 2005, they installed a water treatment plant to treat the water and keep it clean. The Spanish Ourense Business Confederation awarded them a Social Responsibility Award in 2006 for their work and environmental awareness. They even added Braille script to their wine labels for blind people and donated 10% of their Christmas wine sales to the charity in 2009.
