Constantino Ramos' project begins in Monção (Vinho Verde region) where he found old vines in Riba de Mouro and Tangil in the top of the municipality of Monção. With them, he produced his Zafirah. He wanted to make an elegant, graceful, easy-to-drink wine that would convey freshness and refer to the old wines of the region, the so-called “Vinhos de Viana”. This red wine with low oenological intervention is intended to honour the famous Monção red wines that were exported to England and Flanders in the 14th and 15th centuries. Artisanal wine, “carried on your lap” throughout its process, without haste or trampling respecting your own will with minimal, surgical and oenological interventions that respect the character of the wine.

He didn´t resist producing an Alvarinho that reflects his interpretation of the grape variety. Using a small vineyard near the place where he explores the reds, he selected a vineyard planted about 250 meters away and produced his Afluente wine, seeking to extract more tension, austerity and vibrant acidity.
