Producer Profile

Lavradores translates as ‘farmers’ in Portuguese. Cheda wines are made by 15 families of farmers that have been making wines in the Douro for decades. Together they own 19 Quintas throughout the three sub-regions of the Douro Valley. They came together to share resources, expertise, tradition and innovation. To make wines that reflect the great diversity of terroir in the Douro under one roof, with one approach and one winemaking team. Paulo Ruão and Olga Martins are the incredibly talented winemakers behind Lavradores de Feitoria. Their Cheda range offers fantastic value from the heart of the Douro Valley – bright, youthful, approachable styles of wine that fit comfortably onto any shelf or wine list.

Tasting Note

Fresh and fruity, this lemon coloured wine is aromatic, revealing tropical fruit like plums and watermelon. Fresh and fruity on the palate, it is very elegant with balanced acidity and some minerality. A beautiful contrast of citrus and tropical fruit.
