Vineyard: There is a continental climate in the area with hot summers and cold winters.The area is little susceptible to the north winds and the winds of the Atlantic because it is protected by the Serra Mesão. The soil consists mainly of granite and slate.

Vinficiation: This port comes from the best grape vines of the ‘RD du Douro’ and is made and bottled according to the traditional method. The harvest takes place at the end of October. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel cuves and the must undergoes a fermentation process, which is stopped by the addition of brandy of 77% vol when the desired sweetness is reached. The wine continues to grow another 2 months in barrels, after which it is separated from the sediment. Tawny Porto has had maturation for at least 4 years.

Tasting notes: The color changes to brownish red due to the ripening. In the nose are fruity aromas with flavors of nuts and caramel.
