Wine Making
Vinyard Wine Maker Vinification
Founded in 1955, the Adega Coop. de Borba, was the first of a series of Cooperatives settled in the Alentejo region, promoted and helped by the "Junta Nacional do Vinho" a public organization that controlled and supervised the wine production in Portugal, at a time in which the wine production didn't carry much weight in the region. This action allowed the creation of a commercial and productive organization for the Alentejo wines, otherwise the vine culture could have completely disappear because all the existence incentives at that time were for the production of cereals in order to transform Alentejo in "the granary" of Portugal.   The 2009 vintage has revealed exceptional characteristics to create this Adega de Borba Garrafeira. It was produced from grapes cultivated in the oldest vineyards of the region, which have a foundation composed by schist soils, with a meticulous control of productivity of the grape and accompanying of the maturation stage of each grape and specific plot. After they arrived in the winery, the grapes were slightly crushed with total destemming, process after which the alcoholic fermentation followed. It was performed in stainless steel vats with moderate mechanical stepping. Maceration was performed for 10 days under a controlled temperature of 24 ºC. The wine aged for 12 months in French and American oak casks, after which a slight filtration occurred. It then aged for 30 months in bottle in the cellar
