    Description

    In 2009, Michel Chapoutier picked out a plot in the Douro Valley.A small vineyard plot of 3 hectares, but full of promise: Eleivera. Here, the winters are tough, the summers a long, dry heatwave. To get sufficient output, Michel Chapoutier joined forces with local producers and worked with them to grow touriga nacional, a typical Portuguese grape. The result was Pinteivera and Eleivera, two representatives of this region, which is a Unesco world heritage site.

    Rabigato, Gouveio, Códega do Larinho.

    Harvest
    The grapes are harvested by hand and transported in trays.

    Soil
