From the Latin clandestinus. Kept secret or done secretively; covert behind-the-scenes; under-the-table; concealed or hidden; illegal or immoral. Planted at plain sight in the heart of Dão, the grapes that give birth to this Clandestino have a very distant origin. Produced by a number of accomplices, from harvest to bottling, this wine shows itself fresh, delicious, enigmatic and – so they say – immoral.
The happy marriage of these two grape varieties was promoted by the private terroir of Quinta da Teixuga, giving the two international grape varieties all conditions to develop. personality, influenced, however, by the Portuguese temperament.
