Zom

2014 was a year of low production, not only due to some diseases during the vegetative cycle but also due to shattering. Due to the accumulated water in the soil during winter and spring, there was an advancement of the vegetative cycle, and if it weren’t for the constant rains during the harvest, it would have been a great year of this decade; but for those who managed to harvest early, it was a year of exceptional quality.

Vinification: After a careful selection of grapes at their perfect ripeness, the grapes are cooled to 10°C and crushed in lagares, marking the beginning of the fermentation process, with 3 days of pre-fermentative maceration in stainless steel tanks for 4 days at a controlled temperature of 26°C. After malolactic fermentation, the wine ages in French oak barrels for 18 months (50% in new barrels, 20% in barrels of the second year, and 20% in barrels of the third year); the remaining 10% of the batch ages in stainless steel tanks.
It should be served between 16 ̊ and 18 ̊ C to accompany game dishes, roasts, or a board of creamy cheeses.

Barão de Vilar

The known origins of the van Zeller family refer back to the 13th Century, to the Flemish cities of Mechelen and Nijmegen, where they held several properties, namely, in the village of de Zellaer. During the 17th Century, in the rouse of the religious wars that ravaged the northern and central Europe at that time, the van Zellers migrated to Spain and Portugal, countries where they came to settle.

Their connection to the wine business dates back from the beginning of the 17th Century, according to the wine records Livros da Imposição (1620-1640) that refer to the trader Jorge Fernandes and his son-in-law Francisco da Silva Moura, ancestors of the Portuguese legacy of the family, as the biggest wine traders registered at that time. These ancestors of the van Zeller family are the first known members of an uninterrupted series of 14 consecutive generations devoted, to present days, to Port and Douro wine trade, an unprecedented fact in any other Portuguese family “dynasty” involved in the wine business.
