The Dão's Red Wine Retro aspires to be the wine exactly as the name suggests… an old-school Dão! In the past, the Dão’s wines were in a lot in the vineyard and pressed with the feet, still with the rake on, and its fermentation was a lot slower and made with indigenous yeasts. The oenologist’s intervention (which at that time didn’t exist) was minimum. This way we achieved a very typical wine. Without any doubt a Dão!


Winemaking: The casts are harvested together to 20kg small box. Since the grapes were fully collocated, it was made an initial press to break the bags, so that the ‘juice’, with high sugar concentration, can contact the existing yeasts on the bags’ skin, so that a more natural fermentation was originated. The fermentation was a lot slower, and when it finishes, the pressing was made with the tear’s must racking to used French oaks’ barrels, where it stayed for 12 months.
