Lavradores de Feitoria

Lavradores de Feitoria (a.k.a. Feitoria) is a unique project, created on September of 2000. Resulted from the union of 15 producers, owners of 18 Quintas spread throughout the best terroirs in the 3 sub-regions of the Douro region (Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo and Douro Superior). Nowadays the company has 48 shareholders (of which 15 are producers), and 19 Quintas. Together, they have a total area of vineyard of more than 600 ha.

These producers – with distinctive participations in the capital of the company, under one brand, one winery and one team – join together to share resources and create synergies to accomplish together what alone they could not. For the first time in Douro, a group of determined Douro people associated knowledge and experiences, innovation and tradition. A joint and beneficent effort that marks a new time for Douro.

Sharing and associativism, concerted in a modern way, reasonable and smart, are the core values of Feitoria. The goal has been, since the beginning, to create balanced and elegant wines that age well, having as a starting point the declared commitment with the excellence and tradition of Douro.

With 19 Quintas spread all over Douro, Feitoria can get the best raw material, with grapes from all varieties (even the less known), vines of all ages, planted at multiple altitudes, with different expositions, in a different heterogeneity of soils.

Lavradores de Feitoria’s proposal comes when Douro is recognized as a wine region with worldwide value, reinforcing two adjectives for the wines of the region: elegance and balance.

All wines from Lavradores de Feitoria – from the big consumption to the big ageing capacity – are balanced, elegant and food-friendly, but always with a Douro identity. One should expect, and demand, a strong character for each brand as an expression of terroir, concept, or even fantasy.

At Lavradores de Feitoria, we produce blended wines and the so called terroir wines. The first– with the brands Lavradores de Feitoria Douro, Gadiva and Três Bagos – are made from a rigorous selection of grapes from the different Quintas and reveal the complexity, the richness and the blending tradition of Douro. The terroir wines – with the brands Meruge and Quinta da Costa das Aguaneiras – reflect the character and the individuality of a specific vineyard.
