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.  

In the 2005 harvest appears the first Montes Claros wine with indicative "Garrafeira". It was elaborated from a previous selection of old vines installed in chalky clay ground, with a rigorous control of the grape production and the evolution of the maturation in each grape.

This process involved particularly the grape growers associates, which had an additional care to produce grapes of extra quality. The alcoholic fermentation was in inox vats, the maceration was during 10 days, under a temperature control of 24ºC.

The malolatic fermentation occurred French oaks of first use, American and chestnut oak, followed a period of repose of 12 months in the same barrels. After fast filtration, occurred the bottling and a final period of 30 months in bottle.
