Quinta da LAPO Merlot 2010
The estate has existed for over 300 years. Its history, rather than weighing upon it, still lives Within the house and fields, and can be felt stirring Within a glass of wine, an evening walk, a reception or a simple moment of sharing. Here, everything can be Told without words.
Dom Lourenço de Almeida, governor of Pernambuco, son of the Count of Avintes and official of the Order of Christ, personifies the soul of this unique location. Neither the powers of the time nor the opulence maximized by trade with Brazil and India ever managed to Impose Themselves upon the redeeming principles lying latent at the aristocrat's heart.
