A biodynamic sparkling wine from the portuguese winemaker Rita Marques
Conceito Vinhos Portugal:
"When you taste a Conceito wine, you can taste its essence - our love for nature; respect for climate and soil’s characteristics and the ambition to do the best with what our land can produce.
The subtle flavours hide the wisdom of balancing experimentalism and tradition; respecting the old vines; trusting the longevity of the wines and looking for a refreshing profile that feels like drinking, not only tasting.
Our wines have soul because they are authentic, but also because they carry the consistency of a winemaking project which involves local communities, in a partnership with shepherds and farmers, stimulating natural and organic production in the region.
Our core has remained: precision, sobriety, elegance, respect for nature and its cycles. Light but deep wines. Appealing but long lasting. Restrained; sober, yet, rewarding and sophisticated." - Conceito Vinhos
