THE VINEYARD

Centennial vineyards, full of native varieties, where the Baga and Maria Gomes predominate, planted in stony and poor soils, the raw material is scarce, but extremely precious. The chalky nature soils, that allow the development of unique and unmistaken wines, help the retention of natural acidity and, conveying freshness and minerality, contribute for the authenticity, singularity and complexity of the final product.

Bairrada is a wine region, just right outside the university city of Coimbra, located between the Atlantic coast and, the neighbor countryside region, Dão. Is characterized by rainy winters and mild summers, with a climate heavily influenced by the sea. The soils range from sandy to clayey and chalky, which allows it the ability to produce wines in different styles. Classified as a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) region, it stands out by the unparalleled reds, however, is also known and renowned by its fresh and mineral whites as well as the high quality sparkling wines.

 

WINES MADE WITH LOVE

It´s an entrepreneurial project that has as main focus the recovery of old traditional vineyards (saving them from being uprooted) and the production of authentic wines.

Thus it borns the solo project, in chalky nature soils, reminding GIZ (chalk).
