Garrafeira - a quality reference

Garrafeira is a very old Portuguese term that refers to bottle-aged wines, a process which provides a better integration of the structure, body, acidity, gravity and wood. Over the years, wines stored in cellars began to gain this designation and became part of the legislation governing some of Portugal’s finest wines.

In the Alentejo region “Garrafeira” is now a reference reserved for high quality wines, with a minimum ageing period of 12 months for white wines - with at least six months in a glass bottle - and, in the case of red wines, a minimum of 30 months - with at least 12 months in a glass bottle. This process is duly monitored, on a step-by-step basis, by the Alentejo Regional Wine Commission - CVRA and managed with an individual current account.

Traditional ageing in a vat confers natural balance

In the search to ensure greater finesse and creaminess, fermentation in traditional French oak wood vats, associated with a volume ratio that is higher than the contact surface, develops a balanced level of micro-oxygenation and an exclusive contemplation-based winemaking process. The traditional ageing process in 3000-litre vats provides a natural balance, and the sophistication of a timeless wine, whatever its subsequent use. It conveys the spirit of the Alentejo.
