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.
Oscar Gatão
The harvest period occurs in the beginning of September. The grapes are destemmed and crushed. The alcoholic fermentation then takes place at a controlled temperature of 25ºC. During this period the maceration occurs for 7 days by using the pumping method so as to optimise the extraction of colour, aromas and flavours. The next phase is the malolatic fermentation which is a very important step that allows the wine to become softer and smoother. After the period during which the wine stabilises by using physical process in stainless steel vats, the wine is filtered before being bottled in the following spring
