Nuno Vaz e António Olazabal Ferreira’s project holds since its inception a very evident trade of originality. The duo produces wines in the North of Portugal, in which are included both the Douro region and the Planalto Mirandês. There, they turn to local farmers with whom they establish meaningful relationships, on their search for terroir blends, very rare caste mixes at times, that naturally blossom at the properties, many times from centenary vines. It is a strategy that aims to salvage a forgotten legacy of aromas and flavors of the Portuguese winemaking, divided around three structures by geographical origin and winemaking methods.
