The house – Casa Santa Eulalia was founded in the 17th Century. The property is located in Atei, Mondium de Basto which is in the Basto sub-region (most inland of the Vinho Verde sub-regions.) The fertile granite soils and excellent climate combined with modern viticulture provide the base, while the richest of the local traditions are still upheld in the winemaking process. Azal – in the Branco and Espadeiro – are known as two of the best grapes from this sub-region, producing bright, textured and balanced wines.
