One of our Vilariça Valley vineyards, Macieira is very near to Quinta do Ataíde and Quinta da Canada, our two other properties in this remote area of the Douro Superior. Macieira, which supplies grapes to our Altano DOC Douro wines, was largely replanted between 2016 and 2018 and will become an organically farmed vineyard from 2019.
