    Not only from the centenary vineyards with more than twenty different varieties of wine grape is our JOA made. It’s the rigorous Winters and the ruthless sun of Alto Transmontano that without giving any truce to the land, they force it to liberate from the schist the best that they have to offer to our grapes. From the grapes to the produced wine in this region there’s the distance between tradition and innovation. Between the knowledge of generations and the best oenological practices of last generation. Between the future and the memory preserved in the people of Parada’s village: heart, cradle and soul of Casa DO JOA. It’s because of all of this that JOA is so much more than a wine. It’s living memory of this land and a genuine declaration of our Amor ao Alto.
