O Produtor, tasting note published in May 23rd 2016
Dark ruby colour. A fragrant and elegant aroma, where notes of fresh vegetables, wild berries, peppers are combined. Soft and enveloping taste, with polished tannins and fine acidity. Final taste is a wine that is mainly worth the great balance of the set.

Our grandfather Martinho, a Mogofores farmer, produced red wine and, being one of the rare winemakers that separated white grapes from red ones, made a beautiful and famous white wine. Both were sold in bulk to business houses in the region that bottled it. Having died at the end of the sixties of the last century, our father, Manuel, took charge of the entire estate whose vineyards he modernised and enlarged, but no longer producing wine for the market. In the mid-nineties we started winemaking trials with the various grape varieties that had been planted in the meantime (many of which were for the first time in the region). The decision was then taken to start vinification for the market and to build a new winery. The first Campolargo wines were from the 2000 harvest, and the new winery was only built in 2004. Currently, the third generation is responsible for the vineyard, Jorge Campolargo and the winery and sales, Carlos Campolargo. But it already has the collaboration of the fourth generation, Joana Campolargo, who ensures the administrative support and external relations. Therefore, we want to maintain and pursue the exclusively familiar character of our winemaking.
