We are doing a natural, artesanal, certified organic wine. This means we use biodynamic treatment in the vineyard and no added sulfites or yeasts in the winery. We don’t conform with naming, for two reasons: Portugal has a weird denomination system, this very system only serves big farms and supports conformity of practices and flavours. We cooperate with 16 year old vines, on a terraced hilltop inside a natural park, on a river 8 km from the Atlantic ocean. The soil profile is shallow clay with xisto, a compacted clay rock formation.
