Production Methods




Wine made from organically or biodynamically grown grapes with minimal intervention avoiding the use of chemicals, additives and technology.

Tasting Notes

This is not your typical inky, tannic expression of the Baga grape. Instead, you'll find this light red wine to have a very fruity character with freshness and floral notes. The wine fermented in stainless steel tank with carbonic maceration. After undergoing malolactic fermentation the wine is bottled unfiltered. Best enjoyed lightly chilled.

Serve it with a nice chill!

Douro wines tend to be a bit fuller and fleshier than their Dão counterparts, which are generally lighter and higher in acidity. Reds from both regions are dense, rustic, and well-balanced. They also show their terroir quite clearly, and represent a great alternative to the modern fruit-driven...
