The winery was created in 1997, when Dorina Lindemann moved from Germany to Portugal and devoted herself to the production of wine. Today, Dorina and her two daughters, Julia and Luisa continue to be passionate about the indigenous vines of Alentejo. It is the relationship between their wine and the terroir of Quinta da Plansel that has enabled them to work towards a precision driven style of viticulture.
Quinta da Plansel is situated about 100km from Lisbon, in the southeastern part of the city of Montemor-o-Novo. They have around 75 hectares of vineyards that are an integral part of the DOC area of Évora. This region has a temperate climate of Mediterranean characteristics. The temperatures fall quickly with the sunset and, with the maritime influence, night-time temperatures are below 18 ºC. The cool nights guarantee good acidity in the wines and a favourable aromatic profile.
This wine is 50% Touriga Nacional, 40% Aragonez (Tempranillo) and 10% Trincadeira.
