What am I: Humus Flui Pet Nat Branco
Encosta da Quinta is a family property, home to Rodrigo Filipe and his Humus wines. Rodrigo is one of the pioneering and most experimental and exciting natural wine producers in Portugal. A self-taught viticulturist, and former civil engineer, he left that career behind to dedicate himself to the vineyards acquired by his grandfather in 1960.
The winery is located in the demarcated region of Óbidos, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Serra dos Candeeiros mountains, north of Lisbon. In this place, the focus is on natural winemaking with local varieties.
From the slopes of Quinta, emerges Quinta do Paço’s Flui Pet Nat – a radiant white sparkling wine born of organic Óbidos grapes in southwestern Portugal. Through spontaneous fermentation, it’s bottled raw, untouched by filtration or fining, and without sulfite additions. Delicate bubbles crown this vivacious sparkler, an ideal companion for dishes graced by the ocean’s bounty.
