Muxagat Vinhos

Muxagat means "owl and cat" in Portuguese; it is also , probably more relevantly, the name of a small village in the Douro Superior wine region, located 2 km from the small town of Vila Nova de Foz Coa.

It was here where Mateus Nicolau de Almeida, from the famous eponymous Port House, set up the Muxagat Vinhos organic winery, intent on exploiting the potential of the steep schistous slopes and determined to bring to greater prominence indigenous grapes, especially Touriga Nacional and Touriga Francesa, both quite well known, and less well known, Sousâo, Tinta Francesca and Tinto Câo.
