Born in a family with a long wine-producing tradition, at the heart of the noble Dão wine region, Julia Kemper, a Lisbon-based lawyer, decided to change her life completely and to continue the family tradition in their property Quinta do Cruzeiro. From lawyer to farmer, Julia started creating natural organic wines that respect the pace of nature.
Producing elegant wines with delicious acidity, an incredible texture, high quality and organic means extensive knowledge, constant work and learning, that take advantage of resources, promote balance and preserve biodiversity.
The Dão Demarcated Region produces gastronomic wines, with exceptional acidity of complex and delicate aromas. Its character, complexity, elegance, balance, maturity and enormous potential for aging is the perfect combination for National and International cuisine.
