The Producer

About Casa de Mouraz

In the ancient terrain between the Estrela and Caramulo mountain ranges, where the monastery of St. Pedro de Mouraz was erected by Cister monks in the 12th century, Antonio Lopes Ribiero and Sara Dionisio have revived age-old vineyard traditions. Inheriting generations of vines, they transformed them into the Dão region's first certified organic vineyard in 2000, now fully embracing biodynamic farming. Their return from careers in the London art world was driven by a commitment to preserve their family heritage. Focused on expressing terroir through local varieties, they meticulously tend to thirteen hectares across ten parcels with varying soils, altitudes, and surroundings. Combining modern technology with traditional methods in their stone cellar.
