The Douro has a unique landscape. It is the world's first demarcated and regulated region (1756) and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are few places that reflect so well the admirable feats that can spring from Man's effort and dedication. It is in this region that Domingos Alves de Sousa produces his wines, according to a family tradition begun by his grandfather, which is today also taken up by his children. The old and ever-present wish to find the best embodiment of a vineyard lead Alves de Sousa to convert into wine only the grapes from his own estates, truly unique terroirs for the magnificent diversity of the region's natural varieties. The quality and singularity of his wines have been widely recognised with distinctions and mentions in the most acclaimed national and international publications. We should particularly highlight the "Producer of the Year" award presented in 1999 and again in 2006 by the most important Portuguese Wine Magazine (“Revista de Vinhos”), becoming the first in the history to receive twice the most coveted and prestigious distinction for Portuguese wine producers.
