A word from our suppliers at Ribafreixo
A glass of wine contains its entire history in the soil from which it grew, through the cycles of nature shaping the labour of those who work it, their ancestral knowledge and the technology applied. The wines made at Ribafreixo are clear evidence of this authenticity. Their unique taste and characteristics express the terroir, the carefully selected grape varieties, the microclimate of the Vidigueira region, and the passion of Ribafreixo’s team. We choose to use only Portuguese indigenous grapes from the region as a distinguishing factor to confer soul and character to our wines. Our white wines are based on the traditional Antão Vaz grape, complemented with monovarietal grapes like Verdelho or Alvarinho, and combined in their turn with Arinto and Síria to create distinctive variations. There is also a small vineyard plot exceptionally dedicated to the Chenin Blanc grape variety originating from du Loire Valley. Our red wines derive their different characters from Aragonez, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet ,Tinta Miuda and Touriga Nacional grapes. These wines excel by their individuality, seasoned with the special taste of the Alentejo region and in turn these values form the essence of our quest for distinction and quality.
