Private selection red was launched for the first time in 1987 under the name “Garrafeira”. Initially, produced from the best barrels of Esporão Reserva, today it results from the combination of unique plots from the territories where we are present, in the Alentejo. A wine that demonstrates the diversity and richness of Esporão. In exceptional years, this combination gives rise to Torre do Esporão.
Over time, we have been deepening our knowledge of our territories in Alentejo. We better understand its potential and take advantage of the uniqueness of our vineyards to produce the best wines, at the pace of nature. This knowledge materializes in the Private Selection red that combines the intensity of Herdade do Esporão, the texture of Herdade dos Perdigões with the vitality of the altitude of Lavradores in Portalegre. Each vineyard is vinified and aged separately, according to the profile of each variety, resulting in a complete wine, with texture, intensity and vitality, which reflects the diversity and richness of the territories of Esporão, in Alentejo and which in exceptional years gives rise to to the Esporão Tower.
