Quinta do Poeta is a very recent family wine project in the Douro region that is a tribute to the poet Fausto José dos Santos Júnior.
Fausto José (1903-1975) was a contemporary of Miguel Torga, José Régio, Alberto Serpa and Branquinho da Fonseca. He left a vast literary work, especially poetry. He was born in Aldeia de Cima in the municipality of Armamar, on the left bank of the Douro, where he grew up and began the studies he completed at the University of Coimbra, where he graduated in Law, an area in which he carried out a good part of his professional activity, while building his literary work.

The year 2021 is characterized by a year of good production, with a generalized good acidity of the musts, alcohol not too high, resulting in well-balanced wines. The altitude of the Segredos do Poeta vineyards perfectly complement the best of 2021. The harvest took place in the third week of September, with 50% Viosinho, 30% Arinto and 20% Alvarinho. The grapes were carefully selected at the entrance to the cellar and destemmed. Followed by a delicate pressing without maceration. The must was decanted at low temperature, around 10ºC, for around 48 hours, and then it was left to ferment very slowly in stainless steel at low temperature, for around three months (until the 20th of December). Segredos do Poeta white did not undergo malolactic fermentation in order to maintain its freshness and natural acidity.
