 In the depths of Alentejo, between Évora and Serra d'Ossa, lay thirteen hectares of ecological land where the vine lives alongside the grazing, the mounted and the cork oak, millennial olive trees and where some extremely rare specimens live, such as the black stork, in a privileged habitat. In this unique terroir, at an altitude of 450 meters, that some of the most interesting wines of the region are produced under the experienced hand of Pedro Vasconcelos e Sousa, in a subterranean cellar. 
The grapes of the different selected varieties are harvested according to their ideal state of maturation, in 20 kg boxes and immediately vinified. They are destemmed and transported by gravity to the conical fermentation vats. After the pellicular maceration, for extraction, the fermentation of the different varieties takes place separately, with moderate temperatures for about 10 days. Its 12-month aging in new barrels gives it remarkable complexity and elegance. The batch is finalized after aging in wood. Maturation in the bottle takes place for a minimum of 12 months.
