About the winery
Casa da Ínsua's wine-making tradition, part of the Specified Region of Dão, dates back to the 17th century, even though it was thanks to Manuel de Albuquerque - an innovator in vineyards, technologies and varieties of vine - that its wine became famous as of the 19th century. It has since won several awards. Its main varieties of red vines are the Touriga Nacional, Jaen, Tinta Pinheira, Alfrocheiro Preto, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tinta Roriz; its white, the Malvasia Fina, Encruzado and Semillon.
Casa da Ínsua welcomes tourists all year round. Many opportunities to enjoy reinvigorating visits to a heavenly place, set well in the heart of the Dão wine region.
By booking ahead, hotel guests can participate in the grape-gathering, watch how Casa da Ínsua Wines are made and taste them in the company of the estate's oenologists. Grape-gathering takes place between September and October, depending on the weather and the ripeness of the grapes. Bookings are subject to confirmation of the actual dates of the grape-gathering.
Apart from wine, locally produced gourmet products and souvenirs are also sold in the Hotel store. (Source: www.casadainsua.pt)
