Wines with Identity

In Silvã de Cima, next to the Taboadella vineyard, we find a wine press built in an ancient monolithic boulder, one of the oldest vestiges of winemaking in the Dão region.

Taboadella’s wines derive from a historic terroir, which has a unique genetic heritage ensuring slow maturation of the grapes and leaving a mark of elegance, giving rise to classic wines of great complexity and freshness, characteristic of an identity that only Taboadella can confer. Here, the past and future complement each other. The wines originate in the vineyard and the landscape, with patient and special care that has enabled us to recover from the past the essence of nature and project great wines into the future with a remarkable typicality maintaining the ancestral character of the Dão region.


They descended the mountains towards the north; settled in the gentle hills of Silvãs and Rio de Moinhos, where it seems that the solid and cold granites originated light, permeable, poor, but energetic soils, where the vines still represent a distant era, that has remained unchanged since the last ice age. The gentle late summer winds from the Iberian plateau have a very marked influence on the Dão wines. In contrast to the cold winds from the highlands of the Serra da Estrela, that accompany us throughout the production cycle, here we get the structure and fluidity of the moderate heat with the freshness and texture of altitude. That is what makes this place unique.

The Villae are blended unoaked wines that demonstrate the character of Taboadella. Intense, they are delicately scented, lighter, with soft tannins and refreshing acidity.

Taboadella Caementa Rosé

Caementa is the wine that revives the tradition of cement (caementa in Latin) in the Dão region in a contemporary version. Its fermentation and ageing in NicoVelo cement tulips made it possible to create a transparent, elegant, mineral brilliant and fresh wine, full of energy with a vibrant acidity and textured body.

Taboadella Caementa is a rosé wine that awakens our senses and represents a classic expression of the Dão region with a firm, well-defined profile.

The Classic Grape Varieties of the Dão

In classic wine regions, such as the Dão, the grape variety assumes a fundamental role. We are talking about the identity, of the Dão region - its character, perfume, colour, longevity, fluidity, adaptability, complexity, affinity with wood. The identification of the region.
At Taboadella we wanted to reveal the potential of each of our classic grape varieties.

The Monovarietais Reserva (single variety reserve wines) are the result of a selection of plots that during the growing season have always been highly balanced, thereby making it possible to obtain unique and highly personalised wines, some rather proud and even haughty; but all of which unequivocally reveal their origin.

Grande Villae

When we return to the land, at each step we count the geology, where the aromas of pine, rosemary and carrasco remind us of distant times, when a small community of women, men and children, lived in harmony with the produce of the land, which gave them a rich life, we also inevitably think about balances, respecting what nature offers us in a free and generous manner every day.

Grande Villae of Taboadella is one of the elements that has been handed down over generations, through community life, a waning and harsh agriculture, the roughness of the passage of time and the simplicity of life. Each sip makes us recall the aromas from former times and each gulp reveals the texture, verticality and strength of this place in the Dão region.

Grande Villae wines have a rare structure - a reference to Taboadella’s Roman soul, a tribute to its ancestry.
