Grapes Espadeiro


Variety with some expansion in the region of the Vinho Verde. Produces ruby colored wines with a fresh, grapey aroma and flavor. Traditionally vinified in “open spout” at different locations in the region for production of rosé wine.

 

The vineyard


In the properties, with about 24 hectares of vineyards, you can find the best grape varieties of the region, giving rise to rosé wines (Espadeiro), much respected in the region.


The harvest is carried out manually, with the separation of grape varieties, to allow a separated vinification, for later the lots being made in accordance with the characteristics of the wines produced.


In our estate, in the north of Portugal, you can find the cellar where all our Vinho Verde is made, with the most recent processes, using exclusively grapes from our own vineyards.

 

Bottles of wine storage


Should be stored in the dark at a constant temperature, preferably between 12-14°C, for instance, in a cellar. The storage location should not be very humid (relative humidity should be less than 75%) to avoid mold damage to labels and corks. The bottles should be stored lying down to ensure the cork is always in contact with the wine.
