Quinta PLANSEL had its origins in the systematic selection of the best grapevine varieties in the country. In the 1970s and 1980s, these grapevine varieties were still being planted in mixed vineyards. By way of acknowledging our pioneering work in introducing certified varietal grapevine propagation material to Portugal, we named our current flagship brand PLANSEL SELECTA. The name Plansel comes from plantas seleccionadas - selected plants, and refers to the best autochthonous vine material which has been selected by Hans-Jörg Böhm, the well-known grapevine breeder, and defined as the elite Portuguese grapevine varieties. The Plansel range has elegance and depth; its wines give expression to the special terroir of Montemor-o-Novo, bringing to the fore their own distinctive character, finesse and outstanding quality. This range features the varietals Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca and, of course, Touriga Nacional.
