Our good friend Ryan Opaz challenged us to bring back one of the most noble (yet forgotten) drinks of our region: The Vermouth.
This result? An exciting collection of sensorial snapshots of the Terroir that surround our vineyards at a specific time of the year: Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer.
In each edition the characteristic smells and flavors of the season are captured into a unique Limited Edition Vermouth.
THE SENSORIAL SNAPSHOT OF THE SEASON IN THE VALLEY
The first limited edition is the snapshot of the region in Autumn with the typical smells and flavors of the season. Notes of Esteve and rich honey give way to more delicate flavors like mint, limonete or louro.
In the mouth, the wine is off-dry with a slight bitter note on the finish to clean the palate.
This vermouth is the perfect drink to create a Douro based dry martini or to sip on the rocks nibbling on some local olives or salted almonds.
The second limited edition is the snapshot of the region in Autumn with the typical smells and flavors of the season.
More than 20 plants and fruits were harvested in the winter of 2021 before extracting them in alcohol vinica and then blended with local wine.
Finally we balanced it all with a touch of locally produced honey.
