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.    This wine was produced from from two of the most emblematic and important varieties - Trincadeira and Alicante Bouschet - cultivated in schist soils in the oldest vineyards of the Borba region. The harvest was performed manually and the grapes were de-stemmed and fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel wine mills (largares). Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels at controlled temperatures. The ageing was performed for 18 months in new tanks for the wine wood integration. After a slight filtration the wine was bottled and stored for 12 months in the cellar.
