Tasting Notes

This wine has aromas of green apple and Bosc pear with citrus zest. The palate is dry with refreshing acidity and tart tree fruits that makes it an easy sipper. 


Quinta de Soahleiro was established in 1974. It is run by the third generation, siblings Maria João and António Luís alongside their mother Maria. António Luís has a degree in eonolgoy while Maria João (a trained veterinarian), assumed the responsibility of viticulture and lead the transition of the Soahleiro vineyards to organic.

Allo is a merge of Alvarinho and Loureiro's initials, two noble grape varieties of the Minho Region in Northern Portugal.

Alvarinho and Loureiro grapes are planted in granite soils. The vineyards of Loureiro have Atlantic influence, where the temperature range is relatively low, preserving the varietal's flowery character. In contrast, the Alvarinho grapes come from the inland region, protected by the mountains of Monção and Melgaço, resulting in the dominance of tropical fruit aromas. The grapes are harvested by hand. After pressing and before fermentation, the must is clarified at a low temperature. The Loureiro and Alvarinho ferment separately in stainless steel, maturing on the lees before blending and bottling.
