A Norwegian Dream
The spirit of the famous Norwegian explorers is in us: Discover the Unknown, take challenges !
Passion for a quiet life in and with nature, somewhere in the south of Europe.
With experience from visits to the country through many years of work in fashion and textiles, the choice was easy: Portugal.
Not too far north with rain and cold. Not too far south with burning heat and mass tourism.
But in the middle of the country - Beira Alta. Home of “Vinho do Dão”.
On a first visit, one crisp february morning many years ago, we instantly felt in love with the Dão-region.
With its small villages, dreamy valleys and rivers, high mountains, fresh smell, lushness, tranquility and clean air. In some ways similar to Norway, but warmer.
"This is what Norway would have been like, if it were in the south - it will be nice to stay here" we thought.
After discovering the beautiful Quinta das Mercês our dream of making natural wines became reality !
We now enjoy this good life together, both in Portugal and in Norway.
