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 white grape varieties occurred between the end of August and the beginning of September when they are already wellripe. At their arrival into the winery, the grapes were immediately crushed and stemmed. Then, the obtained must was definitively separated from the skins and seeds to occur a decantation process only for 24 hours in order to conserve all the freshness of the fruit. The fermentation process occurred at a controlled temperature of 18ºC. After 4 months of stabilization in stainless vats, the wine was filtered before bottling.
