Viticulture: All our grapes come from the highest quality vineyards of the Alentejo region, south of Portugal. The agriculture is sustainable, the production is controlled and quality is improved by removing secondary branches and pruning bunches. The vineyards are grown on very poor soil of schist or granite origin, naturally producing very concentrated grapes. The aromatic profile is further enhanced by cultural practices such as defoliation, dawning and weeding of green curls.


Vinification: All bunches entering the winery are passed over a sorting table and subjec- ted to intensive quality control.The grapes are gently crushed and moved by gravity into temperature regulated vats. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermenta- tion occur naturally with no inoculation.
