After graduating in Agro-Industrial Engineering and an internship in Sonoma County, Luís Louro returned to Portugal to work with his father, renowned Portuguese producer of Quinta do Mouro. Fascinated by Alentejo and Portuguese local grape varieties, Luis decided share his vision by moving forward with his project. Thus in 2004 was born Adega do Monte Branco in Estremoz.
Made mainly from grape varieties indigenous to the region, this wine pours garnet red in color and has an intense aroma of ripe, juicy red fruits that are very well-balanced and show a great deal of freshness. This wine has a great flavor profile, medium tannin and acidity and is a fantastically diverse wine when it comes to food pairing.
Pair it With:
While absolutely delicious with red meats and ham, this wine is a surprisingly versatile food wine that can match well with roasted vegetables, smoke, hearty pastas and even Mexican food.
