Coup de Coeur - 1001 Dégustations (France)
The winery and vineyards, owned by the family, are located in Douro Demarcated Region, at the sub-region of Baixo Corgo. The first date about the wine making and caring of the vineyard, in the family, started at 1846. Over successive generations everyone’s focus was in the caring of the vineyards in a traditional way and with minor interference, allowing the plant to express in all its wholeness and with sincerity in the terroir where it was cultivated.
In 2010, after visiting several wine regions of the world, tasting and assessing their wines through international contests this wine was created as a way to express the terroir, the love and hard work of theis forefathers in the caring of the vineyards.
The Desconhecido (“The Unknown”) is in itself an homage to a family that for decades worked with passion, love and caring for the vineyards thei have today. It's also a call to follow our dreams and to leave the “comfort zone” to take chances and brave the unknown. We all look for the challenge, the essence, the origin...the unknown.
The Desconhecido is a wine, with a fruity character, to enjoy at any moment and for all that believe that the Desconhecido it’s much more than just a word...
