Ribafreixo Wines has been designing Herdade do Moinho Branco, at the gateway to the town of Vidigueira, since 2007. Its 282 acres are the result of a collection of abandoned agricultural plots from the region’s declining population and reduced agricultural profits. The name Moinho Branco, or “White Mill”, preserves the building’s original name among local residents who, in bygone days, used the nearby stream to mill the grains they produced. Meanwhile, the new owners’ work is transforming a once arid landscape into fertile lands with 282 acres of vineyard. This arduous task comes from the desire to produce superior wines on this land.
Part aged in French oak barrels, the wine’s bouquet and taste are shaped by the cultivars: Aragonez (40%), Touriga Nacional (40%) and Alicante Bouschet (20%).
A superb food wine for meat stews, traditional dishes such as lamb or pork. Perfect for game birds.
