The grapes come from a centuries-old vineyard, Quinta do Caêdo. The harvest is manual, the grapes are selected in the vineyard and on the carpet of choice, at the entrance to the cellar. After destemming and gentle crushing, the grapes are sent to stainless steel vats, where alcoholic fermentation takes place. A long and gentle maceration is carried out, with controlled temperature, in order to extract the compounds that express the terroir of that vineyard.
