What am I: Quinta do Paço is a family property, with a total of twenty hectares, ten of which are dedicated to the vineyard and certified organic. This Quinta is home to Rodrigo Filipe and his Humus wines. Rodrigo is one of the pioneering and most experimental and exciting natural wine producers in Portugal. The winery is located in the demarcated region of Óbidos, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Serra dos Candeeiros mountains.
Humus Rose is a fresh take on Touriga Nacional, aged in used barrel for 10-months. The wine is bottled completely unfiltered and unfined and is a textured, and rich style of rosé. Not your Southern French throwaway guzzler – this is a substantial wine, with bold flavors of wild red berries and the wild yeasts that completed the spontaneous fermentation. An ideal pair with shellfish, and the traditional Portuguese seafood rice.
