Uivo, a howl back to Nature! Naturally farmed Moscatel Galego, Branco Wine grapes with minimal intervention in the cellar, 4 months of skin contact in cement tanks.
Folias de Baco was started in 2007 by young, innovative winemaker, Tiago Sampaio, who was inspired by his grandfather’s vineyard work. He has a vivacious curiosity and loves to experiment at every step of the winemaking/growing processes. He has studied agricultural engineering and has a PhD in Viticulture and Enology from Oregon State University, where he picked up on modern philosophies and aesthetics of winemaking, never forgetting his Douro roots. Folias de Baco is in the Alto Douro, in the sub-region of Cima-Corgo where the land is very tough and challenging at a higher altitude, but it is an expression of traditional melding with modern techniques. The ‘Uivo Curtido’ is comprised of 100% moscatel galego from 35+ year old vines in soils spattered with schist and granite. It is unfined and unfiltered. As tasty as it looks. Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan. Have fun with it
