Lavradores translates as ‘farmers’ in Portuguese and Cheda wines are made by 15 families of farmers that have been making wines in the Douro for decades. Together they own 19 Quintas throughout the three sub-regions of the Douro Valley and they have come together to share resources, expertise, tradition and innovation and to make wines that reflect the great diversity of terroir in the Douro under one roof, with one approach and one winemaking team. The incredibly talented winemakers behind Lavradores de Feitoria focus on their Cheda wines being bright, youthful and approachable from quality vines with an average age of 25 to 30 years.
