Everyday white wine Vinho Verde

The white Vinho Verde wine “Encosta do Xisto” that is to be consumed daily with your meals. It is a wine that has no pretensions getting older in a wine cellar, is a wine to be drunk now.

What does it mean Xisto? Xisto is shale a fine-grained, clastic sedimentary rock composed of mud that is a mix of flakes of clay minerals and tiny fragments (silt-sized particles) of other minerals, especially quartz and calcite. Shale is one of the most abundant stones in our region, so we decided to baptize our wine in honor of this magnificent stone so abundant in our vineyards.

The vineyard

In the properties, with about 24 hectares of vineyards, you can find the best grape varieties of the region, giving rise to white wines (Loureiro, Alvarinho, Trajadura and Pedernã), much respected in the region.

The harvest is carried out manually, with the separation of grape varieties, to allow a separated vinification, for later the lots being made in accordance with the characteristics of the wines produced.

In our estate, in the north of Portugal, you can find the cellar where all our Vinho Verde is made, with the most recent processes, using exclusively grapes from our own vineyards.
