Casa de Cello has been a family business for 4 generations. It was in the 80’s that one of the owners, Joao Pedro Araujo, began to professionalise and modernise Casa de Cello’s activity. He reorganised the existing structure and implanted the best viticultural and oenological technologies in order to get the optimal expressions of its “terroirs” in the wine.
Located in the Dao region, near the village of Penalva de Castelo, it currently has 20ha of vineyard. The vineyard was planted with a careful choice of grape varieties - Touriga-Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Tinto Cao, Alfrocheiro, Encruzado and Bical - in order to create Quinta da Vegia wines.
Casa de Cello has always been concerned with environmental responsibility. In this way, for all cultural decisions, as well as for the protection of its vineyards, Casa de Cello practices sustainable farming in order to produce healthy and high quality grapes and ensure the expression of its terroirs in the wines it produces.
As an independent wine-grower, Casa de Cello controls every stage of the process, from the vineyard to the commercialization of the wines: we cultivate the vines, harvest, vinification, aging and bottling in the quinta.
