The Bairrada region, where the São João caves are located, enjoys a cool climate ideal for producing excellent Espumantes. Bairrada and Dão enjoy a temperate climate that allows them to produce wines with excellent ageing potential, but these wines are also delicious in their youth.
Thanks to the generosity of Dirk Niepoort, who guided us during our first years in Portugal, we were able to taste very old bottles from the São João Cellars. An impressive bottle of Porta dos Cavaleiros 1963 left us with an unforgettable memory. In 2015, when we had the opportunity to enrich our collection with these wines, we did not hesitate a minute.

Aromas of citrus and peach bring a very seductive freshness to the wine. The percentage of chardonnay gives it a recognizable flavour and a little fuller than the fresh aromas suggest at first glance.
