A history of pure wine…
The concept of this project comes from our desire to create distinctive wines based on the rich Portuguese varietal heritage. The choice fell on the quest for ancient vineyards of the variety Baga, and the project V PURO came together with the discovery of old vines, aged between 80 and 120 years old, planted in the heart of the paradoxical D.O.C. Bairrada.
Bairrada in center northern Portugal by the sea, is a wonderful world full of fresh and intense flavors. The Atlantic influence in the Mediterranean climate combined with the clay and limestone soils and its native varieties, creates unique wines. Our vineyards are located in the heart of the region, a valley between Mealhada and Luso called Vale de Cadoiços, which has always been a terroir of choice for the Baga variety.
Our approach to vineyards and wine is as natural as possible and with minimal intervention to achieve a more pure expression of the vineyards “terroir”. All the different wines come from different vineyards with unique characteristics that print a very distinct identity to each wine. What we do in the cellar is merely the purest interpretation of the character of the vines and grapes in order to obtain the best and most genuine Bairrada wines.
