The Passarella terroir has a reputation to defend, as the sub-region has been known since time immemorial for producing the finest Dão wines. The winemaker Paulo Nunes is on the rendezvous and makes fine wines in Passarella.
Casa da Passarella is one of the historic estates of the Dao appellation. The estate was founded in 1892 a few years before the formation of the appellation. Its wines express the complexity and freshness of the region on granite terroirs at an altitude of 500m.
Descoberta gives a beautiful expression of the excellent terroir at the foot of the Serra da Estrela. The vineyards at the foot of the mountain, in the southeast of the Dão, have been known since time immemorial as the best in the region. The combination of local grape varieties on granite soil and the cool climate offers wines of excellent freshness and medium body, with a fascinating mineral touch.
In 2010, during work carried out at Casa da Passarella, a case, hidden in a wall, was found containing the estate's cadastres dating back to 1942.
