What am I: Porto based Engineer Marcos Hehn Pinto da Silva is a winemaker immensely proud of his shared Portuguese and German heritage. As one of the very few small, family-owned sparkling wine specialists in the famed Távora-Varosa DO, Hehn sparkling wines are known for their depth of flavor, long bottle aging, single estate sourcing, and extremely hands-on artisan winemaking. Távora-Varosa is Portugal’s only wine region whose existence is tied to sparkling wine.
The Hehn estate has been in the family for generations, and Marcos is focused on offering sparkling wine lovers a Portuguese bubbly that rivals the best in the world. Start your journey with the Colheita Brut, and move on to the Reserva. Take things up a notch with the delicate pink bubbles of the Brut Rose and the perfect golden breadiness of the Velha Reserva.
