Herdade do Vau / RISO Wines

Herdade do Vau / RISO Wines – this is not only a small winery but also a wonderful agrotourism facility that allows one to fully experience the tranquillity and purity of the Lower Alentejo region. The regional classification of its wines/appellation is IG ALENTEJANO. In the field of wine-making, the desire of Herdade do Vau’s owner is to achieve a combination that has been called “biochic”, which, loosely translated, means “ecologically pure splendour”. The synergy of the Sousão and Alfrocheiro varieties, with a dominant accent of Touriga Nacional, gives these wines an exceptional aroma (with smells of ripe raspberry, plum, cacao and chocolate) and the taste of blackberry with smooth tannins and a balanced acidity. Herdade do Vau was awarded “Revelation of the Year 2013” by the Portuguese wine industry, while the RISO RESERVA RED 2013 was chosen as the best Portuguese wine that same year.
