O Produtor, tasting note published in September 12th 2018

Ontem's Red Wine is a regioanal wine from the Douro. Open colour and very fine and precise aroma, wild strawberries, lavender, humus, dry vegetable. Very pure and expressive in the mouth medium-bodied, notes of earth, spices, delicate and contained fruit involved in enormous freshness. A lot of character and uniqueness in a wine that you don't want to stop drinking, a true "vin de soif".

Conceito Wines

Whoever tastes a Conceito wine feels its essence on the palate. Our love for nature, respect for the characteristics of the climate and soil, the ambition to always do the best that our land can produce are there.
The subtlety of flavours hides behind a wisdom of balancing experimentalism with tradition, of respecting old vines, of trust in the longevity of the wines, of the search for a refreshing profile, that you want to drink, not just taste. Our wines have soul because they are authentic, but also because they carry with them the consistency of a wine project that involves us with the local community, in a partnership with shepherds and farmers, stimulating an organic and natural production in the region. Over the years, our portfolio has grown to a varied range of reds, whites, varietals of various origins, Port wines and even a sparkling wine. What remains are always our principles: precision, sobriety, elegance, respect for nature and its cycles. Light wines, but deep. Appetising, but long-lasting. restrained, sober, but generous and sophisticated.
Purity, elegance and authenticity is our motto. It is not an empty motto. It is a life program, a design, a commitment to our land, our people, our customers and followers. Purity means that our wine is based on the vine, on the grapes, on which we put all our effort and knowledge. It means commitment to our land, to the future, the legacy we build every day when we choose not to use chemicals, to leave a clean ecological footprint, to believe in our terroir and preserve it in sustainable harmony. Elegance is the definition of our site, the freshness that altitude gives us, the low-intervention oenology that builds the connection between the love of our vineyards and the pleasure we want to find in the glass, at the table. This integration, balance and smoothness, the refreshing touch of our wines, the desire to have another glass and enjoy the sophisticated delicacy of the aromas and flavours, are the compass that guides all the work we do. Authenticity represents our conviction that this exceptional terroir can produce remarkable wines that go beyond geographical and bureaucratic barriers, business cards from our little corner of the Douro to the whole world.
