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.   For this wine, the grapes harvest occurred all along the month of September, when the red grapes reach generally their best maturation point in the region. When the grapes were unloaded in the vinification center, they were immediately crushed. Then, this must entered into an alcoholic fermentation process in stainless steel vats under a controlled temperature of 25ºC. During the first 6 to 10 days of fermentation, the must was also in contact with the grape skins to extract colour, aromas and flavours. Afterwards, the malolactic fermentation process occurred. Finally, the wine reposed and matured its final characteristics for 6 to 12 months in stainless vats before bottling.
