for this port come from the single vineyards Vinha da Pisca, Vale do Pinhão and Ferrão and from 60 to over 100 years old vines. Harvesting takes place exclusively by hand in the period from September to October.
Once the harvested goods have arrived at the winery in Vale de Mendiz, they are crushed with their feet in Lagares using a traditional method.
