A stunning expression of the Douro, sourced from two of our most prized high-altitude vineyards.


It is in barricas, or oak casks, that the wine finishes its fermentation, helping develop its distinctive smooth texture and notes of vanilla.


Known for its yellow colour, this variety produces lively wines with good acidity, fresh aromas, and ageing potential.


One of our family’s most prized high-altitude vineyards. Located high in the Rio Torto Valley as part of Quinta do Retiro.


A variety with extremely low yields, but one that produces fresh, fragrant, and well-balanced wines.

Cima Corgo

One of the three sub-regions of the Douro. Home to the Pinhão and Rio Torto Valleys, overlooked by our vineyards of Chões and Tapadinha.


A versatile variety, Arinto helps create vibrant wines with acidity and freshness, and a mineral undertone.


One of our family’s finest high-altitude vineyards, reaching 500m. Located in Quinta das Netas, it is known for its incredible panoramic views across the Pinhão Valley.


A subtly fragrant variety that produces full-bodied wines with great ageing potential.

Since we began our mission to produce great still wines in the Douro, we have been learning how white varieties perform in this unique and challenging terroir.

With Pequeno Dilema we believe we are answering the question of whether our region can produce beautiful whites.

A fresh and elegant wine, with great poise and character, sourced from two high-lying plots in privileged locations.
