The artesanal winemaking processes recurring to the use of big clay pots (Talhas) is a technique inherited by the roman period, which has remained unaltered during around 2 thousand years...
...having fallen in oblivion with the advent of modern oenology and industrial production from the end of the 20th Century.
Hence, this technique has been progressively abandoned and remained in modest homemade productions for small village "Tascas" (Iberian small restaurants), also on the edge of extinction themselves.
To us, this archaic vinification method and everything that surrounds it, represents the essence of the Alentejo culture, lacking in preservation and promotion.
This arduous, labour-intense technique is of enormous simplicity, representing the purest way of quality winemaking, with unique characteristics.
These are the reasons that lead us to recover old clay "talhas" back to their ancient function to make Portugal's best and rarest historical wines in them. Wines with heart and soul from Alentejo.
