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 with selected grapes from the oldest vines in the region of Borba. After a rigorous control of the maturation of the grapes in the vine, the grapes were de-stemmed and crushed smoothly when they arrived in the winery, after which the alcoholic fermentation process followed, having been performed in stainless steel lagares (wine presses) with mechanical pressing. The vinification process ends with maceration during 10 days at a controlled temperature of 22-25 º C. The malolactic fermentation was performed in low-volume stainless steel vats. The wine aged for six months in new French, American and chestnut oak barrels, having then been bottled and spent 6 months ageing in the bottle
