Overview of the Wine
MQ Wines is a young family project, which embraced with all the passion the concept of “boutique winery”, dedicated to the production of premium wines of Alvarinho, in the “Valley of Ares” brand. The vineyards are located in the middle sub-region of Monção and Melgaço (Quinta do Mato), family owned since 1683. According to Miguel Queimado, “For us, the focus on small production, is more than just a few bottles, is a state of mind, is the desire to know and passionately control all grape production times and wine, each vine, each bottle. What drives us is the passion for wine, the terroir, is the enthusiasm to bring you an exclusive wine designed by us!"
Viticulture: Without forgetting the sustainability of the environment, the Vale dos Ares team adoptedpractices that promote biodiversity and ecosystem growth, promoting the maintenance of existing biodiversity in our vineyards.
Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand and transported in small boxes, reaching the winery in an average time of 5 minutes, preserving the highest quality of our grapes. When the grapes arrive at the winery they are subject to a rigorous selection and undergo a cold skin maceration followed by a soft pressing, at low pressure. The clean must starts the fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
Aging Sur lies for 6 months, conservation in stainless steel.
