Located in the southern foothills of the Serra d’Ossa, this place is special, sit down! It was here that vines were once planted, the place was known as the Chão dos Hermits, "Chão" ancient term for flat area, and the "Hermits" referring to the Hermit monks of the order of São Paulo.
Here there are proofs of the uninterrupted production of wine since the 20th century. XIV, the vineyard was so important that a Papal Bull in 1397 exempts the “Pauperes Hermits” from paying tribute (taxes) in their vineyards. But archeology goes further, as the discovery of the only Phoenician wine amphora in the interior of the country, which dates back to the 17th century. VIII BC, connects this place to wine about 900 years before the arrival of the Romans, in which there are 3,000 years of history linked to wine.
Here the winemaker António Maçanita makes a vinification with 30% whole bunch of 70% destemmed, in the vat. Spontaneous fermentation and 40-day maceration in skins, followed by a 12-month aging period in stainless steel vats.
4395 numbered bottles that prove to be a red with good acidity, good complex fatty fish and pot meats.
