This wine is produced in Rui Robredo Madeira’s winery in Sar Joao da Pesqueira, from a selection of grapes from the best vineyards in the Upper Douro.
Castello d’Alba was the first wine he launched in 2000, and Madeira has always wanted it to reflect his experiences and vision of a new Douro that combines cutting edge winemaking with native grape varieties, creating its own modern and innovative style.
