Maritávora Investimentos, Lda : Creation of high quality wines

Maritávora – Investimentos, Lda. was founded with the aim of providing a business structure with a family activity with more than 150 years of history and tradition.

In the middle of the 19th century, José Junqueiro Júnior, father of the poet Guerra Junqueiro, acquired a group of farms and estates in the county of Freixo de Espada a Cinta in the Upper Douro, the great majority of which still remains in the possession of his direct descendants.

An old white grape vine planted by our ancestor at the end of the 19th century remains still in production today, giving rise to the Maritávora No. 1 Grande Reserva Branco.

The white vineyard, which gives rise to the Maritávora No. 1 Grande Reserva Branco wine, is a small vineyard with less than one hectare that has been in production for more than 100 years, although other vineyards that were close to it have already been plucked and replanted. This little treasure was maintained thanks to the perseverance and affection of several generations. The vines are aged between 20 and 70 years.
