Respiro Altitude 2020 White

In 2009, the journalist and wine critic João Afonso, arrived at the Portalegre region with the intention of collecting old vine stocks and replant them in a different location. Instead, he decided to leave the ancient vine as they were, and bought the land, in order to recreate the old methods and traditional production techniques, emphasized by the absence of chemicals, the characteristic mix of castes and the minimal wine-making processes. There are some of the reasons that makes Cabeças do Reguengo one of the most interesting viticulture laboratory of the Alto Alentejo’s legacy.
