Lua Cheia Old Vines White (Douro)
This is a curious and bold project where grapes are selected from small producers without capacity for their own winemaking (but those who produced high quality grapes). The goal is to make wines that show the essence of each of the regions where they are produces and, using Old World teachings, to discover and express the “terroir”. Similar wines usually cost 47% more (Vivino).
