Herdade do Peso Trinca Bolotas

Moving freely through the cork oak forests of the Alentejo, where it feeds on acorns among other things, the Alentejo pig, a species indigenous to Portugal, is Europe’s only surviving pastoral pig. Due to the way in which it forms part of the landscape and preserves the region’s Mediterranean forest, it is part of Alentejo’s heritage. Named after this reputable pig, this wine combines two of Alentejo’s biggest symbols.

All the grapes used in this wine were produced in accordance with the Sustainable Agriculture Integrated Production guidelines as defined by the International
Organisation for Biological and Integrated Control (OILB/IOBC): www.iobc-wprs.org. The rigorous compliance with these practices is certified by an
independent organisation, recognized by the Portuguese State.

With its smooth tannins and enormous balance, this wine pairs wonderfully with light dishes, such as
poultry and pasta, as well as with sausages, ham and more sophisticated meat dishes.
