This is a collaboration of 19 quintas across the 3 sub-regions of the Douro (Baixa Corgo, Cima Corgo and Douro Superior). Started in 2000, this kind-of co-op has 48 shareholders selecting from 600 hectares of possible source material, thus summing the Douro. The term ''avradores' means 'farmers' and 'feitoria' means 'marked land' and denotes the Douro's history as a trading post, a superior land within which to make wine for export trade. The Douro was the first demarked wine area in human history. The Lavradores de Feitoria wines are a refined pan-Douro expression.

I adore these white blends from Portugal. They have so much palate impact bursting with flavour but balanced wonderfully with texture and weight and rich, vibrant acidity. The 2019 Branco is a blend of Malvasia Fina, Gouveio, and Síria. "What grapes?" you said. Who cares? Its delicious! Spicy and bright, with sappy fruit in the middle that picks up your taste buds throws them around as you slosh this down. Green fruits with a light tropical hint but not overripe or too juicy. It's dry and textural with plenty of bounce. Great stuff! MYLES, PWS
