On your return to Portugal after years of study and experiences abroad, including a BA at the “Harvard of viticulture and oenology”, the University of Adelaide, and internships with spectacular producers in Australia, New Zealand, USA and Stéphane Ogier in Côte -Rotie, the “Anna of the world” decidedly wanted to reveal a new and incredible Alentejo. From her admirable rehearsals, which range from 700 meters above sea level in the Serra de São Mamede to the sea level of her vineyards on the Costa Alentejana, refinement, precision and freshness reverberate with contagious energy. The exploration of the terroir, organic cultivation and the unique care with viticulture give life to extremely vertical wines full of “drama factor”.
In Cortes de Cima, the land is worked with biological and regenerative practices. In 2021, spring and summer were mild, so ripening was complete before the August heat spikes. Daqui was made with white grapes from our vineyards in Vidigueira, harvested by hand on the 3rd of August. The grapes were placed in a 400 liter container with 1/3 of the stalk, with spontaneous fermentation and in contact with the 'mother' until November. In that month, the wine was naturally filtered through the stem. And in May 2022, Daqui was bottled without further filtration. Production of only 300 bottles.
