ABOUT

GEMA

Gema Wines is more than just a winery – we are a business that embraces the lifestyle and culture of the Monção region, with respect to the sustainable production and development of the vineyard. We are a family business that includes every employee, contractor, supplier and customer.

The Monteiro family has a long history of wine-making in the Alvarinho region of Monção and Melgaço. The goal for Gema Wines is to carry on the family’s traditions with the same pride and passion the region is known for. We believe wine should reflect the unique terroir and microclimate of the region from where each grape is grown. We are committed to sustainable winemaking practices honouring the grape, the land, the time, and the people who work it.
