In 1980, civil engineer Alvaro Castro inherited Quinta da Pellada, which dates back to the year 1570. At the time, of his inheritance, he decided to make something out of the estate. He wanted to give it his full time and attention. Rapidly the enthusiasm for his wines made him decide to re-establish the old family tradition of wine making full time. Today, this tradition also includes his daughter Maria Castro.

Alvaro Castro DAC Tinto is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Jaen, Roriz and Alfrocheiro, grown in granite soils with rows of sand and clay. The vines are between 3 and 65 years old and located at an average altitude of 550 meters. The result is a light-bodied, bright and graceful wine offering notes of crushed herbs, cracked green peppercorns and fresh red fruit, leading to a long finish accented by hints of peppery spice.
