Douro Doc

Grape variety

The LUYT Colheita 2021 Branco is made from Gouveio, Viosinho and Rabigato, typical indigenous Portuguese white grape varieties, which gives this wine its unique character.


The LUYT Colheita 2021 Branco comes from grapes from a field specially selected by Maarten van Luyt at an average altitude of 550m on the south side of the Douro Valley in the UNESCO World Heritage area. Due to the indirect sun on the northern slopes, the grapes develop slowly but vigorously here. The soil is mainly slate. The yield is 3000 kg/ha.


The LUYT Colheita 2021 Branco was handpicked and brought to the winery in 20kg crates. Here the grapes were sorted, pressed and immediately “cool fermented” in a stainless-steel tank at a maximum temperature of 15oC to preserve its expressive fruitiness. This Branco must remain at the Quinta for at least one winter before it is bottled.


The LUYT Colheita 2021 Branco may be called a Colheita because it meets the high-quality requirements of the IVDP (Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e do Porto).


The year 2021 has been a good year for Douro wines with a relatively long harvest period and higher yields than the two previous years. The heat waves that affected other regions in Europe spared the Douro. After the rather cool and dry summer, the wine regions were treated to very welcome rainfall at the end of August, which has given the plants another boost to produce beautiful, usable fruit.

Shelf life

The LUYT Colheita 2021 Branco can be drunk immediately and is expected to hold its characteristic freshness optimally until 2025/2026.
