António Marques da Cruz is the current generation of this family-run estate, though he was the first of his family to make this work into a full-time passion. Serradinha’s claim to fame is the fact they are the first estate to be certified organic in Portugal. The winery is located near Lisbon where the climate is cool and wet. The wines themselves are lower in alcohol due to the climate, a style that separates his style from traditional Portuguese wines. Antonio consciously doesn’t classify his wines as “Lisbon” as he thinks it too broad. The ladybug you see on the cork is an homage to the moment one landed on the top of a bottle which happened around a pivotal moment for the family.
A unique white which is both herbal with an underlying salinity note, this wine is a blend of two local grapes unique to western Portugal.
