In 2000 António Lopes Ribiero and Sara Dionisio left their secure jobs in Lisbon and immersed themselves in what has become a family adventure, focused on sustainable viticulture and authentic winemaking. The couple were pioneers of organic viticulture, attaining certification in 2000 and cultivate the vineyards biodynamically.
Mouraz, situated in the heart of Dão region, is António’s birth place and he inherited old vineyards and the couple have themselves planted vineyards. This is also a place where the landscape and terroir is shaped by its people and geography, old and new vineyards coexisting with the pine, oak, chestnut and cork trees in a wild forest. This diversity is reveals itself in the personality and complexity of the CASA de MOURAZ wines, and reflects their love of the place. Planet Mouraz wines are made naturally without added sulphites.
