Secret Spot Wines

Secret spot Wines is born from a dream come true in a two-way project and has only one objective: to produce the best wine, true to its origins. The first step was to find an accessible wine cellar, with a mild climate (high altitude), spacious and well-sized, that allowed to reconcile the traditional Douro wine practices with the contributions of modern oenology. The place was the Quinta da Faísca Winery, in the parish of Favaios. The construction dates back to 1946. In the cellar were 3 wineries and 1 lagaret in stone (on the top floor) as well as a vertical press. On the lower floor were 14 wooden barrels for Port and Moscatel stages. With the aim of creating a wine cellar that would allow small portions to be vinified using different styles of winemaking, a few changes were preceded. All the grape reception was moved to the outside of the winery, keeping the wineries and the vertical press. On the lower floor 7 wine barrels of different capacities were refurbished, 1 vertical press, 3 fermentation vats and 6 storage vats were installed. In the space occupied by the other old barrels, the oak barrels now stand. From sorting to pressing the grapes, no pump is used. The architectural element of this winery – two-story construction -, so characteristic of Douro wine cellars, allows the wine to be moved with the use of gravity.
