This is a joint project between Joana Santiago from the eponymous Quinta de Santiago in Monção and the winemaker, oenologist and producer Nuno Mira do Ó, one of Portugal's most famous "flying winemakers". Born from a sincere friendship and inspired by rock music, a shared passion beyond wine! A rebellious and authentic wine, raw and pure expression of the Monção and Melgaço "terroir".

The aroma is impressive with many flint notes that accompany the grapefruit and mandarin fruit. The notes of citrus peel linger in the taste, which is dry, with immense tension that continues in the crisp finish full of shine and presence.

Hand picking, gentle pressing, natural decanting. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts of 40% of the must in used 400 l barrels, 50% of which underwent malolactic fermentation spontaneously. Slow fermentation of 60% of the remaining must in barriques. Then stored on the fine yeast for 9 months and matured in the bottle since August 2019.

Goes well with a wide range of dishes such as tomato salad, cockle xerém, steamed mussels, grilled sea bass, juicy tuna, roasted quail, pickled partridge, spicy guinea fowl or Iberian pork ribs

Nuno's story 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 properly learned winemaking, known as 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 control by the Troika. 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 rather concentrates primarily on its own countless indigenous grape varieties. In fact, Portugal has the largest selection of indigenous grape varieties in the world. That's exactly what interests Nuno and his partner.


Together with João Corrêa he worked as an oenologist for Companhia das Quintas for several years until one day he met João Soares from Caves Messias. Together the two decided to make a red wine from the Baga vine in the Bairrada and so the project, or rather the wine Alías, was born. They then decided to make a white wine from the Encruzado grape in the Dão, the Druida. Both wines are so-called “garage wines” that are produced in very small quantities.
With the Mira, Nino wants to show the potential of the terroir of the Bucelas region and the Arinto grape. A nice coincidence that Nino's last name is Mira do Ó and "Mira" means "show" in German. A very apt play on words for this name.
