Everything that affects the wine quality: soil, climate, grape varieties, farming, weather, the producer's philosophy. Each grape variety its own characteristics and it's crucial that understand them in order to make the most of the soil and the grape together. We should apply our knowledge and intuition to create the perfect association between every one of these factors in order to achieve the ideal wine.

In Portugal there is a variety of planted grape varieties, the majority being indigenous or very well adapted varieties. Most wines are blends of different grapes in which each one provides its qualities. The grapes in these wines were selected by personal taste considering what I believe is their potential to produce wines character and a distinctive freshness.
If on one hand we have typical Alentejo grape varieties on the other I went grapes from other regions to add something new to the wines. Each grape variety the potential to elevate a blend or shine as a monovarietal.

The producer

About Miguel

"When I younger I wanted to be an innkeeper, today I want to sit at the table and share stories and knowledge some wine, bread and cheese. Life made me a wine producer. I've always been free to do what I wanted and I a happy child to have been able to grow in the countryside and a lucky teenager to have a cellar at home. The passion wine grew and to I express myself by making wine. Wine after wine, bottle after bottle, label after label, whatever I create, I do it as form of expression. It's I express myself a wine, a bottle or a label. It's I share what I like, what I think, what I do and what I feel."
