Just past the dunes of Peniche, he found scattered small old vineyards with a lot of potential. He convinced the owners to rent them out to him and now farms them organically and does everything by hand.
Luis' Marinho wines are bursting with character and are the perfect expression of the Atlantic climate that makes Portugal so unique.
