Roaming freely in the cork oak forests, where it feeds mainly on acorns, the Alentejo pig, an autochthonous Portuguese species, is the only survivor of grazing pigs in Europe. Due to the way it marks the landscape and preserves the Mediterranean forest in the region, it is a heritage of the Alentejo. It is also a gastronomic treasure, always present in the local cuisine, and an invitation to pleasure. By associating it with this wine, we combine the two greatest symbols of the Alentejo at the table.


Vinified at the Estate from selected grapes. After maturation studies, the grapes were harvested at their optimum point of phenolic/aromatic maturation to proceed with their vinification. After total destemming and soft crushing, pre-fermentation maceration was carried out for 3 to 4 days, to increase aromatic and polyphenolic complexity. Fermentation followed at controlled temperature at 26ºC for about 7 days. When the desired organoleptic balance was reached, the masses were gently pressed.


After malolactic fermentation, the wines were transferred to French and Caucasian oak barrels, where they aged for about 6 months. To preserve its great quality, the wine was bottled without cold treatment, so that a slight deposit can form during the aging in the bottle.
