The Meireles family cared for vineyards in the heart of Minho, Vinho Verde, Portugal for years before deciding to build a small winery, what is now Quinta da Lixa (named for the small QUINTA da LIXA surrounding town). Quinta da Lixa is a modern, state of the art facility. Beyond making wines that express its exceptional terroir, Quinta da Lixa prioritizes conservation and eco-stewardship. The entire vineyard area, 105 hectares, is managed via an Integrated Production System. Natural methods are also preferred in the cellar, for example using gravity for the passage of wine (rather than electricity).
