This wine is a tribute to all the winegrowers and to the mountains of Pico Island. If it weren't for the mountain, we would never have this profile in this wine. The fact that the clouds are concentrated around the mountain means that we have more sun exposure around the island, making the ripening of these grapes always take place in a more cohesive and structured way. Unctuous, creamy, complex aroma, a mixture of flavours and...

Producer Cátia Laranjo
Region Açores - Pico Island
Grapes Arinto dos Açores, Verdelho and Terrantez do Pico
Soil Grapes from old vines, from 5 different winegrowers.
The Lajido da Criação Velha soil is a lava flow made up essentially of pahoehoe lava and some aa lava. In the past, it was in this area that vines were planted in the cracks of the rocks. The area is known for having the oldest vines on the island, 60, 80 and 100 years old, so the yields per vine are much lower, giving a higher concentration of aromas, flavours, and minerality (rock), and just 300 metres from the Atlantic Ocean, an otherworldly salinity.
Winemaking Manual harvest, whole bunch pressing in a vertical press, 80% decanted, totally spontaneous fermentation. Fermentation and ageing in used French oak barrels, 10% with flower.
Production: 620 bottles
Aging Old French oak barrels.
Capacity 750 ml
Volume Alcohol by Volume: 14%
Temperature 11ºC - 13ºC
Harmonizations Seafood, limpets, barnacles, oysters and sushi.

"I was born and raised on Pico Island, where the subsistence of this island has always been linked to viticulture. I grew up with my father in this system of grapes, vineyards, wineries: viticulture, pruning, grafting and burning." Cátia Laranjo

Cátia Laranjo could even have another aspiration in her life, to do something completely different but, the truth is that her first choice was Oenology at the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro. After more than 10 years of working in several wine regions in the Portuguese continent and around the world, this is his project. It was born from his passion for one of the best pleasures in life, wine. He is proud to call Pico his home, one of the best regions in the world for white wines.

The landscape of the Pico Island Vineyard Culture, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004, leaves anyone, whether they are a wine lover or not, surrendered and amazed by all the hard work around the “currals” and the extreme viticulture that takes place there. The “currals” or “curraletas” are walls of loose volcanic stone built since ancient times to protect the vineyards from the sea winds, creating an incredible landscape. Thus goes the phrase: 'And from stone wine was made, and still is, proof of the resilience of a Picaroto and Azorean people, which they proudly join, in this future generation that wants to keep the Pico name on the map of great wines of the world.
