More info

António Ribeiro was born in the Dao province and came back to his native land in the early 90's whilst he was working as an editor in Lisbon to take care of the family vineyards as his father was not well. The vineyards had been farmed organically for generations and so it was a natural consequence that they received the organic certification in 1997 under Ecocert. In 2000 António and his wife Sara Dinosio decided to take the plunge and work full time at the wine estate so moved from Lisbon to Mouraz in Tondela. They named the estate Casa de Mouraz with a view to produce organic and anthentic wines. And they are pioneer in the Dao as they were the first to get the organic certification. The estate has been practicing biodynamic farming and winemaking since 2006 and they are looking at getting the certification as well. They also joined the famous biodynamic group «Renaissance des Appellations» in 2009. Vineyards cover 14 hectares with indigenous grape varieties only like Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Alfrocheiro, Jaen, Baga and Água-Santa for the red wines, and Malvasia-Fina, Bical, Cerceal, Encruzado and Alvarinho for the whites. Vineyards are located at an elevation of 140 to 400 metres altitude with granite and clay soils. Vineyards are seperately vinified with all the grape varieties together to represent the terroir as best possible. The average age of the vineyard is 30 years old. The wines show real character and finesse. António has also invested with success in the other regions of Douro, Vinho Verde and Alentejo where he purchases local producers grapes and deal with winemaking under the ALR (António Lopez Ribeiro) brand.
