With a strong family character, the company founded by Comendador Vasco Faria, has been in the wine business since 1975 and at the present time owns two estates in the region of Guimarães – Quinta de Freixieiro and Quinta de Cutiães, and two in Famalicão – Quinta de Pereira and Quinta do Xisto.

And it is in Quinta do Xisto, after harvesting the grapes of the four estates that the process of the winemaking of the varietal Vinho Verde “Encosta do Xisto”, takes place. This wine is produced from a selection of the best grapes in our vineyards.

On the 24 hectares of vineyards, the best grape varieties in the region are grown, producing the highly regarded white-wine (Loureiro, Alvarinho, Trajadura, Pedernã), rosé (Espadal) and red-wine, (Vinhão).
