Alva Magna Reserva 2018 White

António Figueiredo became a man breathing in the breeze of the vineyards, steeped in the family winemaking culture and tradition. His father and grandfather left him a taste for wine, which has always coursed through his veins. However, his entrepreneurial streak took him into the sausage business. But wine was always close by. He continued the habit of making wine, for some time, only for his own consumption. Bottling and having his own brand of wine was, for decades, a dream that was constantly postponed.
