According to the legend, Mara Moura settled in the City of Medeiros with her lover. So voracious was the Moura that the people were starving. Finally, the inhabitants plucked up their courage and explained that they could not keep them any longer. Being of justice, Moura and her lover left the city. Grateful for the hospitality of the people, the Moura gave them a great gift: she gave them the vine to grow wine. Mara Moura is made from a selection of high altitude Godello vineyards from the D.O.
