Quinta da Ermegeira - The winemaker of Carbo
Besides Carbo see all QUINTA DA ERMEGEIRA wines.
Ricardo Melo is recovering Quinta da Ermegeira, a historic place and full of stories since the 16th century.
Ricardo grew up in Brazil, where he was exposed to Portuguese wines from an early age. Over time, through tasting and travel, he got to know and appreciate the diversity of terroirs and grapes that define Portugal’s wine landscape. After some time traveling through Europe, he settled in London, where he was surprised to find that most restaurant lists had a very small or nonexistent selection of Portuguese wines. Later, this fact motivated him to look for producers in Portugal that produced wine naturally, but on a small scale. Eventually, it was a greater motivation that led him to move to the interior of Portugal, in order to produce his own style of wines. The final objective was to produce wines naturally without the use of synthetic chemicals or sulfites, in the rich and discreet region of Torres Vedras, on the outskirts of Lisbon.
