Discovering the Dão Region

The Dão is now one of Portugal’s most emblematic and promising wine regions, where the past of noble country houses owned by Portuguese families, who once gave life to the Portuguese interior and developed vineyards throughout the region, intersects with the dreams of the hardworking and welcoming local people.

The Taboadella estate is located in this region, where we find vestiges of a Roman Villa, where even today it is possible to find a large grape press in a monolithic boulder, one of the oldest grape presses in the Dão region. Check our suggestions for Discovering the Dão region here.
