We tasted this wine in Porto, at the "Simplesmente Vinho" wine event, in the ruins of the Convento de Monchique and were very impressed by its high quality.

Unfortunately, Nuno currently only produces 1000 bottles a year, but as its importers for Germany, we hope for more soon.

The wine has a ruby ​​red robe, is well structured and elegant with notes of spices, cherries and hints of vanilla. The tannins are silky and round, the finish is long. A unique wine with a lot of class and potential, typical of the Dão region.

Why Druid?
The druids were sages and philosophers of the Celtic civilization. As such, they played an important role in the judiciary and medicine, as well as in poetry and in the preservation of traditions. However, their most important function was the understanding of the connection between earth (planet) and plants, the spiritual balance of nature.
Our friend Nuno Mira d'Ó does nothing else: he is constantly looking for the balance between the terroir, the climate and his exclusively autochthonous vines in order to produce a perfect wine with a sensual balance. So in a way he's also a druid of modern times. So it's no wonder that one of his wines is called "Druida".

The story of Nuno is similar to the story of many young talented Portuguese oenologists with a vision and a dream. He belongs to the first generation in Portugal who have learned winemaking, the so-called oenology, and who see their country as a kind of playground. Salazar's dictatorship "frozen" the country for several decades, leading to national bankruptcy and eventual Troika control. But the Portuguese are fighters and freed themselves from this unsatisfactory situation on their own. When it comes to wine, the country has hardly specialized in the many internationally successful, mostly French grape varieties, but concentrates primarily on its own countless autochthonous grape varieties. In fact, Portugal has the largest selection of autochthonous grape varieties in the world. This is exactly what Nuno and his partner are interested in.

Together with João Corrêa he worked for several years as an oenologist for the Companhia das Quintas until one day he met João Soares from the Caves Messias. Together, the two decided to make a red wine from the Baga vine in Bairrada and that is how the project, or rather the Alías wine, was born. They then decided to make a white wine from the Encruzado vine in the Dão, the Druid. Both wines are so-called "Garage Wines", which are produced in very small quantities.
