Vitor Claro began his career as a chef and during a mission in the kitchen of an hotel in Alentejo, he was intrigued by winemaking and began making his first wine with a winemaker he had befriended. Vitor then set his sights on an old vineyard in northern Alentejo, Serra de São Mamede and Portalegre. Old vines averaging 80+ years old from granitic and clay soils. The wine is an interesting blend of Alicante Bouschet and Trincadeira (or Tinta Amarela in the Douro) and a field blend of different Muscat varieties, white and red (Nunes, Hamburg, Leona, Petits Grains, Alessandria ). This is a perfect example of Vitor’s red wines: a pale and delicate ruby color, with just hints of berry fruit, and enough grip to keep you interested.
