Three friends from the Douro valley, each of whom deserved their share of gratitude, were dreaming of adventure. When Alvaro Castro, from the neighbouring Dão region, told them about an estate for sale, they didn't hesitate for long. They now produce elegant and lighter wines in Dão alongside their rather powerful Douro wines. Jorge Moreira (Poeira), Xito Olazabal (Quinta do Vale Meão) and Jorge Borges (Pintas) are all producers of great wines that are well known in the Douro. Thanks to a later harvest in the Dão, they could easily meet this new challenge together. From the few beautiful plots at the foot of the Serra da Estrela, a first red M.O.B., a blend of Touriga, Alfrocheiro Jaen and Baga, was released in 2011. In 2012 a white M.O.B. based on Encruzado and Bical appeared. Finally, the accessible red Corujão has in the meantime become an absolute success among Belgian wine lovers.

The nose is very intense and complex, full of character and delicacy with mineral notes and very delicate fruit. The palate is very fresh, slightly smoky, fine spices and a lot of elegance in a great set of lightness and balance. It is very fine, with well-balanced tannins, as well as great freshness, minerality and acidity that bring a sensation of lightness. The finish is surprisingly intense and long, with the presence of fruit that leaves an excellent sensation on the palate. The acidity of this wine gives it great ageing potential.
