Vinhas Velhas / Old Vines

Já reparou com certeza as palavras Vinhas Velhas em alguns rótulos de vinho português, mas o que significa? Numa região com um historial recente como é o caso da maior parte do Alentejo,uma vinha com 20 anos é considerada velha. Numa região com longo historial e rica em vinhas velhas e muito velhas, como o Douro, aceita-se que o produtor diga que o vinho vem de vinha velha se esta tiver pelo menos 40 anos. À medida que a "velhice" vai avançando, a videira produz cada vez menos uvas mas normalmente uvas muito equilibradas e intensas no aroma e sabor. ------------------ You have certainly noticed the words "Vinhas Velhas" on some Portuguese wine labels, but what does it mean? In a region with a recent history as is the case for most of Alentejo, a vineyard of 20 years is considered old. In a region with long history and rich in old and very old vines, as the Douro, it is accepted that the producer say that the wine comes from "Vinhas Velhas" if it has at least 40 years. As the age of the vine advances, it produces fewer grapes but usually very balanced and intense grape aroma and flavor.

SOMMELIER SHOW

 

 

We are a family of “wine lovers”, a space for sharing and interaction between wine producers, wine merchants, sommeliers and people who simply enjoy this magnificent nectar.

 

We would like to gather around our table and our wine a group of friends, from all social and professional spheres, who can share ideas and experiences around wine with us.

We started a series of initiatives, such as wine tasting, meetings with wine producers, visits to their farms and cooking workshops.

 

We count on your support to make Sommelier Lisbon a great Family!
