Quinta Da Plansel
The Wine Paradise
The cellar was created in 1997 by the daughter of Jorge Bohm, Dorina Lindemann, graduated winemaker by the University of Geisenheim (Germany). Initially Dorina' s team consisted of only three women and at that time, they were producing only two wine references: one under the name Plansel and another, Alxam the first sparkling wine - methode champenoise - from the region.
In 2004 Carlos Ramos, joined the team, AT the same time, many Alentejo' s typical varieties were replaced by other Portuguese native varieties.
In 2006, the winery produced around 300,000 liters and in 2017 it is estimated to reach 500,000 liters from 75ha. Quality, rather than quantity is what the winemakers are focus on.
Dorina Lindemann' s wines show lots of personality and "terroir". They impress by their elegance and complexity. Here in Montemor-o-Novo, Central Alentejo, sub-region of Evora, there is a unique micro climate that provides ideal conditions for "terroir" wines. A lot of sunshine, lack of rain, high temperatures during daytime and cool nights. These are the ideal climatic conditions for growing high quality grapes.
