Wine Making
Vinyard Wine Maker Vinification

Released in 1970, the Meia Encosta brand is a clear commitment from Borges to the Dão regions. It is a synonym for the unique characteristics of this region for the production of elegant and velvety wines.

  Complete de-stemming. Short pre-fermentation maceration followed by pomace fermentation for 6-8 days at a controlled temperature of between 26-28'C with frequent pumping over. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is separated from the solids with which it fermented and malolactic fermentation is induced. Part of the wine is aged in stainless steel vats and the remainder in French oak about 4 months
