Every man has a dream, and the dream of Zeca do Pôpa from the Douro was to own a vineyard in one of the best locations in the oldest recognized wine region of the world. He started to put together smallholdings, common in the agricultural structure of the north of Portugal, to form a true vineyard. He baptized the vineyard Quinta do Pôpa, built with both great economic effort and great enthusiasm, in honour of his father who was nicknamed “Pôpa” due to the joy he had in the company of his friends. And so the Quinta do Pôpa was born, sitting alongside the Douro river in a privileged position, counting simply on the best of the wines in the Douro region.
If it was to be possible to produce the best Porto wines at the Quinta do Pôpa, the owner chose to plant the best castes in Portugal with Tinta Roriz dominating, accompanied by Touriga Franca, Tinto Cao, Sousão, and of course, as would have to be, a high percentage of Touriga Nacional. The farm’s vocation is therefore more directed towards the great wines of the best wine region of Portugal. The dream became reality due to the enthusiasm that Zeca do Pôpa put into its development.
