Castes

The wines present in the Christmas Basket were produced from old vines of traditional red grape varieties from the Douro region. The grapes were selected in their own vineyards located in the Pinhão valley, an area where they reach exceptional ripeness and acidity.

Harvest and Vinification

The grapes were picked by hand, being destemmed and smashed gently on arrival at the winery. Vinification took place in shale mills, with foot treading and intense skin maceration, in order to extract the most delicate aromas and intense color. Fermentation ended in new French oak barrels.

Maturation and Storage

The wines present in the Christmas Basket aged in new French oak barrels about 18 months before bottling. After a careful selection, the final batch was prepared, which was bottled and aged in the bottle before being placed on the market. The wines are of superior quality, and can be kept for several years. They should be kept lying down, in a cool and dry place.
