We preserve our legacy
Casa do Outeiro is a property classified as of public interest by the Portuguese Heritage Institute. This house is the genesis of Quinta da Raza, located in Veade, Celorico de Basto, in the heart of the Vinho Verde region. Its history dates back to the mid-eighteenth century.
Quinta da Raza is a family business that has gone through four centuries, still to this day in the Teixeira Coelho family, nowadays in the hands of Diogo Teixeira Coelho, the fifth generation. Their commitment and dedication to the vineyard and to wine has fermented this passion and knowledge over time.
Diogo Teixeira Coelho and family have an umbilical relationship and an ancestral legacy with the Quinta and the Basto Region where he has always lived. After the death of his grandfather Inácio Xavier de Barros Teixeira Coelho in 1987, he began his career as a winemaker and producer. The potential of the place and his passion for agriculture and the world's wines were some of the reasons driving his commitment, with enthusiasm and extreme dedication to the necessary wine restructuring of the farm the family had managed.
Since then, he has devoted himself to the production of excellent wines, retaining his ancestors passion for this wonderful world and soon realising the unique wine characteristics of the Basto region which, in an innovative and audacious way, he has been able to imprint on the character of Quinta da Raza wines.
