The Quinta do Mondego vineyard is a unique site. The old vines thrive in a unique micro-climate being surrounded by hills on either side while extending along the banks of the river that gives it its name, the River Mondego. Cooling breezes, Granitic sandy soils and long sunshine hours combine to produce the grapes which are used to make an exceptional suite of wines. MUNDA was the first wine sold by Quinta do Mondego. MUNDA, a name that the Romans gave to the River, originally described the transparency, clarity and purity of the waters.
