DESCRIPTION:

Barcelos is a red blend with a distinctly Portuguese personality. Barcelos is made under the watchful eye of a talented consulting enologist with whom we’ve been working for a number of years and on multiple different projects, which gives us the flexibility to customize the blend every year.

 

From the heartland of Portugal, Barcelos offers you a taste of this unique place and its tradition of fine wine production. Mostly made from indigenous Portuguese grape varieties, Barcelos reflects our personal relationship with an incredibly skilled winemaker based on trust, common goals and shared vinous tastes.

BARCELOS -
SMALL COUNTRY, BIG WINE:

Portugal is a country small in size, but big into wine quality. The steep canyons and fertile valleys where this wine is grown give it a concentration and depth of flavor that punches well above its weight class. Barcelos vineyards are planted in the interior of the country, a land of rolling hills, herbal chaparral, olive trees and vineyards.

 

Grape growing in the region has been present since at least the 8th century B.C., and it is blessed with clay-limestone soils ideal for the production of red wine. Wines like Barcelos are considered the jewels of the entire region, a treasured resource and revered symbol of national pride.
