Quinta de Baixo

Cordinhã, Cantanhede

Presentation
Quinta de Baixo is located in the parish of Cordinhã, municipality of Cantanhede and was established almost twenty years ago. It has an excellent terroir for the Baga varietal, with its calcareous clay soils. The 22 hectares of vineyards are divided into three estates with ages ranging from 10 to 80 years, located in the famous triangle: Cordinhã, Ourentã, Cantanhede, a region of great aptitude and recognized for Bairrada winegrowing.
The fact that the wine cellar is located on the side of a hill allows the process of vinification to be carried out by gravity. This region has softly undulating sunny hills, calcareous clay south-facing soils, the best habitat for the Baga grape variety, which is the basis of our Quinta de Baixo wines.

History

The Bairrada has always been a difficult region, but in our view, has the potential to be the birthplace of fine wines, fine, full of character and personality.
The zone of Bairrada is characterized by having a cool, humid climate, with Atlantic influence, providing high acidity of grapes and low alcohol content. The soils are clay-limestone or sand and the white varieties like Maria Gomes, Arinto, Bical and Cercial have a fantastic potential. In red varieties, dominated by Berry, where many of the wines based mainly in this region.
The passion for Dirk Bairrada and the Berry comes from the 90s, when not only made wine in Saima House and Bageiras as well distributed wines from Casa Simões and Dores Gonçalves Faria.
We were not looking for the traditional Bairrada, but dreamed of something more: interpret the fantastic limestone linked to traditional varieties soils in our own way, as with flippant Berry.
In 2010, on the pretext of an experience with Filipa Pato in the production of a fortified wine in which Dirk got involved with enthusiasm, it was important to explore the vineyards of Bairrada. It was love at first sight. Not only a made fortified wine, but also a red berry, such was the passion. The result was encouraging, and in 2011, there was about 2000 liters already at Quinta de Baixo, with the friendly permission of Jorge and Sergio.
There was no possible retreat, and from January 2012, Niepoort began to take care of the vineyards and the cellar, with a view to partnership with Jorge and Sergio.
The idea was to go better knowing bairradina personality, but because it was believed entirely in the potential of this region, Niepoort finally sign the purchase of Quinta de Baixo on December 28, 2012.
It was a great challenge, but one more motivation to create something special, something typically bairradino but with NIEPOORT soul.
