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 harvest of the red grape varieties occurred during all the month of September, when they were in their optimal maturation point. At their arrival into the winery, the grapes were immediately crushed to keep the original characteristics of the fruit. Then the alcoholic fermentation occurred in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 25ºC during several days. At the same time, during the first 5 days, the must was left in skin contact to extract colour, aromas and flavours. Then, the malolactic fermentation was strictly controlled to optimise the smoothness of the wines. After stabilisation, the wine was filtered and bottled from the next spring.
