Hand-Picked grapes are destemmed and gently crushed. The final result is separated from the layers into pneumatic preses and bounded for 24 hours, dully protected from oxidation, until reached the desired degree of clarity. This is followed by fermentation in stainless steal vats, under a controlled temperature of approximately 16º. The wine is bottled immediately after fermentation, so we can ensure all its freshness.
Quinta das Fontaltas
Quinta das Fontaltas, with origins in 1626, is located in Resende, on 25 hectares of a south-facing slope, opposite the Monastery of Cárquere, in the Douro Region in northern Portugal. It belonged to a Corte Real noble family but has remained in the Namora family for three centuries. In its agricultural history, the productions of wine, olive oil, fruits and vegetables stand out. After several decades of abandonment and inadvertent fallowing, the new generation, already in the XXI century, begins the recovery of the Quinta, highlighting the planting of vines in almost half the area. This vineyard has a genetic heritage of over 390 years, making its wines unique”.
