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: Handpicked in to 18 kg. boxes. Natural and spontaneus alcoholic and malolactic fermentation . “Cuvaison” of 28 days.
