Poço do Canto, a place from other time, where antique gods wandered and left their aromas.
Word has it that, in remote times, Baco the God of Wine passed through the soil of Mêda. Exhausted, bound to stop at Poço do Canto, he asked a lusitan family for a drink. They offered him water, which he accepted reluctantly, and proclaimed: “One day you shall know what wine is”.
No sooner said than done. Baco ordered a vine plantantion in the arid soil of Poço do Canto, and from these vines plated by the gods comes one of the best wines we know of.
Situated in the Upper Douro Wine Region, in Mêda county, Guarda District, Poço do Canto has a rough and hostile land, where the vines grow robust.
