Located an hour drive north from Lisbon, in the outskirts of the town of Alvorninha, 10 minutes away from the seaside, the Quinta is run by Rodrigo Felipe. In the early 2000’s, after working as a civil engineer, he decided to start making wine. He works 9 hectares of vines that belong to a total of 20 hectares of the family’s property of Quinta do Paço.
The soil here is a mix of clay and limestone, and the micro-climate benefits from the cool Atlantic breezes and the high humidity of the area which provides the grapes with a high level of natural acidity that allows Rodrigo to make bold wines that are not punchy but elegant. Organic certified since 2007, however, it won’t be until 2009 that Rodrigo made his first Humus wine. In the vineyard he uses natural compost and small quantities of copper and sulphur in powder, just when it is required. In the cellar he practices minimum intervention (no sulphites added, unfiltered and unclarified).
Humus Rosé is an organic and natural barrel-aged rosé made with Touriga Nacional. Ferments spontaneously with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The wine then ages for 12 months in 225-litre oak barrels. Unusual rosé with a great sharp Atlantic tension.
