Dão \\ Portugal
Nuno Cancel de Abreu was born and raised in the Dão region of northern Portugal, south of the Douro valley. He began his winemaking career in the Douro, after which he was instrumental in reviving the endangered Arinto grape in Bucelas. Boas Quintas was set up in 1991 in Dão and now has estates across a number of wine regions in Portugal.
Opta wines come from Dão, a region quickly becoming renowned for wines with finesse and character. Poor granite and sand soils force the vines to work hard, while the area is surrounded by mountains that offer protection as well as present challenges, with high humidity a problem in springtime.
