Hi, my Name is Nora.

My first vineyard visit was with 17 years old, in Toscany. The fascination with wine has not diminished since then. And I am interessted in all of it: in the soil, the land, the culture, and in the end the product – the wine. 

about the project vinho comigo

My goal is to get you feel confortable with the topic of wine, because it shouldn’t be treated as something elitist. I would like to share with you an experience that is fun and leaves you curious to explore more. 

My Winetastings and Winetours are suitable for all levels – always with the goal in mind to show you unique wines from Portugal.

authentic Wines

My big passion is to explore local and authentic food, traditions and goods.  That’s why I work only with small producers, where I know how they produce the wines and hear their history. Because it’s my goal to find Terroir driven wines, from all over Portugal. Learn about the producers with me.

let’s taste wine together

So if you would like to learn how to taste a wine, discover unique Portuguese wines or visit small wineries – then book your next wine experience with me. I look forward to introducing you to the world of Portuguese wine!

My values

Natural approach: I prefer to work with Wines that are produced in harmony with nature as far as possible

Small Producers: I work with smaller producers, mainly small family run businesses, to maintain transparency.

Quality & Authenticity: The Wines I choose are of a certain quality and the focus lies on autochthonous grapes.

Terroir: I like wines that have character and stand out from the rest, which are somehow unique.

«For me, a “good” wine is not just a wine that tastes good. It is a wine that tells a story. Where I can see the producers passion, expertise and art flowing into each other – I am looking forward to tell you this Story.»

The Wine Producers

I work with selected producers. It is important to me to know what’s the story behind wine and see the vineyards. I am therefore always pleased when I meet the producers personally and visit the fields and vineyards where the grapes grow, see the halls where the wine is produced and stored.

With my values at my heart I choose the producers I work with not only according to the “quality” of the wine, but also to the way of production. That’s why I work with producers with organic productions, sustainable farming and integrated production system in which the use of chemicals is minimal.

Meet the Producers..

Casa de Cello

Casa de Cello is a contact I am really happy about. The family business in the 4th generations produces Wine on 20ha in the Dão Region, in the Quinta de Vegia, as well as in Amarante, which lies between Minho and Douro. There their Quinta de Sanjoanne produces White Wines (Vinho Verde) on 14 ha. The Production is all sustainable, which means that they produce in harmony with nature. The different grapes are processed and tested individually to get the best result from the grapes every year. The result: Fantastic wines!

My favourite Wine of Casa de Cello is the white Wine Quinta de Sanjoanne Superior 2015  – so elegant and fresh. What a Wine!

Quinta da Ribeirinha

When I visited Quinta da Ribeirinha, the siblings Rui and Mariana welcomed me with open arms and showed me around. The family business, which is located very close to Santarém, is dedicated to wine in the third generation, with the aim of producing typical wines with a good value. Mainly Portuguese vines are used, but also some international ones, such as a Gewürztraminer! They produce a great variety so that everyone can find a suitable wine. With the “Vale de Lobos” Line they created wines which which please everyone.

My favourite Wine of Quinta da Ribeirinha is the Vinho Espumante Ros̩ Bruto Рa perfect Summer Wine!

Alveirão

The visit of Alveirão in the small village of Chicharo was special for me: an immersion into the culture of Portugal! Since the XIX century, wine has been grown on the terroir of Alverião – and always organically, with respect for human and nature. The five brothers produce wines that are a pleasure to share – at the dinner table or for pleasure. On the steep, white, Limestone slopes grow Grapes so dense and tastefull – you don’t want to miss this! What you taste is the terroire, the climate and nature at its best!

Manz

It was important to me to have a local producer in the range. I have already drunk Manz Wines in restaurants – and found them excellent. The slogan of the Owner André Manz is “I do not want to produce a lot of wine, what I want is to produce good wine” which fits well to what they produce in the small villge of Cheleiros. The land where high-quality wines are produced today was overgrown in the meantime until Manz bought it up to live his passion there. 

Of the Manz wine selection, I like the “Lisboa” best. Great value for the price, not over woody, nice structure, and Portuguese grapes in their fullness.
