Vinification

Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A very fine wine, made by blending wines of different harvests and ages.

Burmester Port Wine Special Reserve Ruby - Sotto Voce

Traditional Douro grape varieties, in particular Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz.

The rows of vines are traditionally planted across the slope in horizontal terraces. More recently vines have been planted up the slope (called “vinha ao alto”, meaning vertically planted).

Schistous-sandstone (greywacke), interspersed with granite in some places.

Up to 600 meters.
