Description

What am I: Penhó Principio Vinhão red wine

 

Penhó Wines are garagist wines produced from grapes grown at Quinta de Penhó. The Quinta is located Northern Portugal. The family vineyard is currently being converted to organic, and the wine is produced as naturally as possible. Using minimal intervention, they have created unique natural wines with very low sulfite levels.

Every wine is made with two days of maceration before pressing, fermented only using indigenous yeasts. After pressing they remain over the lees with no racking, or bâttonage. No filtration, stabilization, or clarification is carried out. No additional products are used to correct or alter the wine. Everything else varies from wine to wine, but Penhó takes pride in all of its wines. They strive to make them better every year, starting in the vineyard, with their care of the vines.
