Folias de Bacchus, Douro
Ref. & Closure
All old vines, a mixture of red & white grapes.
This “Renegade” wine is one of the most unique wines we have in our portfolio. Made entirely from old vines (+ 70 years old), planted with a mix of native varieties (more than 25), with the white and red varieties as they are mixed in the vineyard (~50/50%).
This mixture of grapes are blended together from the outset to produce a wine that is a bright and light red colour. A light and refreshing mouth, very smooth, and an almost salivating acidity. A very drinkable and savoury wine, that incites you to drink more, without any weight of the alcohol.
Even though the grapes are purely local the Douro Institute refuse to classify it as a Douro wine due to it’s Renegade nature. Join Tiago in the fight against their stuffiness and enjoy this amazing young red!
