MENINA D’UVA, ALINE DOMINGUEZ,  TRÁS-OS-MONTES (UVA)

For Aline Domingues, who was born and raised in France, the village of “Uva” in the Northeastern region of Trás-os-Montes is a special place. Not only it is where her family roots are and where she spent many summers as a child, it is also a place where she has chosen to settle pursuing a dream of becoming a winemaker.

After a Diploma in fermentation, Aline moved to Portugal. She begun with working for few months at Quinta do Romeu (Douro), shortly after moving on to make her own wines, naming her project “Menina d’Uva” (A girl from Uva). The first years were very challenging – as she worked “against all odds”, trying to overcome mounting scepticism of her family, as well as gradually gaining the trust of the locals from whom she rents the vineyards. Aline looks after 10 small plots of old vines, totalling 3 hectares. Her focus is on maintaining a healthy, living soil to support the vines in this arid and hot climate. She does not apply any treatments to the vines, relying only on nature. In the cellar, full bunches ferment spontaneously and pressing is done manually in a vertical press. Depending on the wine, the ageing takes place in stainless steel, glass jars or neutral oak barrels. Ever since tasting them couple of years ago, we were really impressed with the purity and sincere character of Aline’s wines. We admire her determination, stamina as well as her enthusiasm and love for Uva.

FOLIAS DE BACO, TIAGO SAMPAIO,  DO DOURO

The wines of Folias de Baco, originate in the vineyards located in the Cima Corgo, Alto Douro sub-region, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001. The enterprise is entirely run by Tiago Sampaio, who farms the land, makes the wine, works as an enologist and the salesman. His philosophy is to combine the traditional and the new; alongside vines of over 70 years old Tiago has planted new vines. The rocky soil of the vineyards is made up of schist and granite, and their location on the softer slopes at an altitude between 500 and 700 meters above sea level, gives the wines unique freshness. The extreme temperatures of summer are mitigated by altitude, allowing the grapes to mature slowly. UIVO wines are Tiago’s personal projects.

LUIS SEABRA VINHOS
LUIS SEABRA VINHOS, DOP DOURO, DOP VINHO VERDE, DOP DÂO

This fascinating, personal project was started by one of the most talented and charismatic winemakers in Portugal – Luis Seabra. After nearly a decade of making wine for Nieport and becoming instrumental in the success of this acclaimed brand, Luis decided to start making wine for himself. Refusing to conform to the general trends, he is exploring the fascinating terroir of Douro Valley in a unique way. Apart from working with growers in Douro, he also makes a rare example of Vinho Verde called Granito Cru. The fruit for this premium, barrel fermented Alvarinho, comes from four different plots in the best part of the region, near Melgaço. In recent years he has added to his range the wines from the Dão region. Always eager to experiment with various soil types (mostly schist & granite), elevations (up to 600 meters above sea level), indigenous grape varieties and old vine parcels. “Everything starts with the land: if we do good work in the vineyards and the fruit comes healthy and with good ripeness, I don’t have to do a lot in the winery.” – a modest statement from an experienced and self-assured winemaker.

QUINTA DO ROMEU
ORGANIC.png

QUINTA DO ROMEU, JOAO MENÉRES, DOP DOURO

Nothing is flat at Romeu. Neither landscape nor climate, neither people... nor aromas! The vineyards, the olive groves, the cork oak forest and two streams coexist in harmony with squirrels, livestock and wild boars, forming a living patchwork governed only by nature. The wines naturally reflect all this. Although with the robust character of Douro, they show the elegance and freshness of this distinctive location. There is a great respect for the grape variety and in the cellar, everything happens with minimum of interference.
The grapes are hand picked, foot trodden in granite lagares, and spontaneously fermented using wild yeast. The use of Sulphur is minimal and the wine is matured in old wood, to preserve its freshness. The farm is located in the north-east corner of Douro Superior, with 25 ha of vines, 120 ha of olive groves and vast area of cork oak forest. It is now run by Joao Meneres, representing the fifth generation of the family, who fell in love with this land as long ago, as 1874. An altitude of 320m, dry continental climate and shale - granitic soil, determine the style of the wine. The estate is certified organic since 1997 and in 2012 Joao also decided to convert it to biodynamic, allowing nature to take care of things.

VIEIRA DE SOUSA
VIGNERON.png

VIEIRA DE SOUSA, LUISA BORGES & MARIA  VIEIRA DE SOUSA, DOURO, PORTO

Although the Vieira de Sousa family has been working their vineyards in Cima Corgo for five generations, they have only started bottling their port in 2008. For Luísa Borges, who oversees the winemaking, it was very much a “home coming” experience. After graduating from oenology and two years of working for Taylor’s, she joined forces with her sister Maria reviving the family brand. They own five fincas in Cima Corgo, in direct proximity to the vineyards and equipped with traditional granitic stone lagares. Depending on the style, the wines are either elaborated in stainless steel (to capture lively primary fruit of the ruby ports) or aged oxidatively in large format tonneau or smaller pipes (tawny and white ports). Luisa favours freshness and primary fruit profile, so she harvests a little earlier than others. The sweetness in her wine is never “too much”, as it is offset by lively acidity. Addition of the finest quality aguardente is carefully calibrated and the spirit is seamlessly integrated.
