«The concrete vats help maintain this earthier, more elementary character of the wine.»
When we have the elements earth, water, sun and air on our team, we don’t want to hide them, but rather enhance them. Everything else is superfluous. All it takes is a short walk through the organic vineyard for all of the biodiversity to unfold, rich and balanced, where everything has a purpose.
Rui Flores, the estate’s agricultural manager, adds: «these and other practises led us to work on the Nature of the details and thereby fulfil our objectives. This was the course we determined and which we believe in».
In case you are wondering if so many details really make the difference, we asked José Roquette for some additional comments. «Some people are more demanding, they go deeper and like to discover the story of the wine, of how that bottle on the table got there.»
And João Roquette adds. «This is the first wine we launch that is 100% a reflection of the journey we started to build by introducing the organic farming model. This marks a turning point – from now on, as the vineyards receive organic farming certification, the Esporão wines we know and which have been on the market for several years, will also become organic.»
Through our demanding first organic wine, we recall the elements, practises, auxiliary organisms, friends and family who have been with us the whole way, from the estate to the table, including the land, the fruit and the wineries. This story of nonconformity and balance has been a long one but, fortunately, as the saying goes, «no one ages at the table».
