Winery

Everything revolves around gravity. And the very smallest details at the heart of creating the finest wines.

At Herdade da Malhadinha Nova, nothing happens by chance. Built from the ground up in 2003, the winery, purposefully embedded into a hill, takes advantage of the natural slope for the vinification process.

The grapes, cut from the vines, travel by hand in 12 kg baskets to where they are, gratefully, received to begin the winemaking process. Under a watchful eye, they reach the selection table after sorting in the vineyard. They destem the grapes and transfer them to the vats without using pumps. They ensure the final quality of the wines.

Following the laws of physics, the grapes fall into modern refrigerated presses where human feet crush them traditionally. This manual work integrates with the assistance of the latest vinification processes.

After employing high technology, the wine rests several meters below ground in a thermally insulated environment.

They age the wine in French oak barrels supplied by eight high-quality suppliers: Francois Frère, Mercury, Nadaliè, Cadus, Damy, Tarausaund, Boutes, and Seguin Moreau.
