Soil Dão: In the old days vine growers planted their vineyards with different vine varieties in order to obtain a balanced wine, only with their vineyard. Consisting of more than 7 white grape varieties, the grapes responsible for this part of the lot are from centuries-old vineyards, with the characteristics of Terras de Senhorim sub-region.
Vinho Verde: These grapes were harvested from an ancient vineyard in the sub-region of Sousa, a fresh region of rich and granite soils, suited to the style of wine he sought for this blend.
Winemaking Dão: The great challenge in these cases is to harvest in its perfect ripeness, taking into account that each grape varieties has its own ripening “time”. The harvest was on 15th of September, after a careful selection, the grapes were pressed with stems, very slowly and the must gently sended to a stainless steel vat. By accurately controlling the temperature, this must fermented with its indigenous yeasts, thus preserving its natural aromas. Its prolonged stage took place in french oak barrels expressly chosen for this.
Vinho Verde: Being the date of harvest, the “Terroir” and the varieties crucial to the success of this blend, we harvest the varieties of Avesso and Alvarinho on different days. The grapes were carefully transported in 25 kg boxes to the winery, selected with the help of a selection table and sent to the press that gently separated the pulp from the seeds and skins. The must was carefully sent to a stainless steel vat where it slowly fermented with its indigenous yeasts, thus achieving the purest Nature gives us. Because this wine was with its “fine lees” since the fermentation, it has a singular character typical of the Avesso and Alvarinho varieties

From an early age Carlos Raposo realized his connection with nature, for that reason at the age of 16 he followed oenology and viticulture at the CVR Bairrada School. At the age of 20, he left for France, where he studied for seven years in Bordeaux and Burgundy. He obtained a degree in Viticulture from the University of Burgundy and a master’s degree in oenology from the University of Bordeaux.

During his studies, he worked at the Château Smith Haut Lafitte and Château Malescot Saint Exupery in Margaux. After that, he looked for other experiences and worked at the Quinta Sardonia in Ribera del Duero (Spain), Robert Craig in Napa Valley (USA) and Stuart Wines Company in Heathcote (Australia).

In 2011, at the age of 27, he returned to Portugal, where he started working with Dirk Niepoort. Though young, his experience around the world, passion and dedication made him the key man of Dirk, at Quinta de Nápoles in the Douro region. He worked hard to sculpt delicious wines like the Batuta, elegant as the Coche, with character as Robustus and Redoma. But also the Turris and all the other projects he has grabbed, from Dão to Vinhos Verdes. Carlos partially left Niepoort in mid-2018, continuing to work with Dirk in the Vinhos Verdes project.

In 2018, he returned to the origins, creating its own project called Imperfect Wines. Carlos is from the Dão region, knows very well the potential of the region and has long dreamed up the wines he wants to make there:

I love fresh, mineral, complex, deep whites and red wines with a hint of rusticity, forest and spices. I believe that the region of Dão is perfect for this type of wine, always thinking about the potential of aging, of whites and reds made by Eng. Cardoso de Vilhena in the Dão study center, a world reference, at the level of the best nectars of our world, very close to heaven … yes that’s what I want to do!
