In this wine, Casa Ferreirinha praises lesser-known grape varieties that may even disappear over time, such as Touriga-Fêmea, Tinta Francisca, Bastardo and Marufo. These are grape varieties cultivated in the Douro for several generations, usually used in Port Wine, which testify to a biodiversity and potential that must be preserved.
“Casa Ferreirinha Castas Escondidas was designed to stage the varieties commonly used in batches of Port Wine, but rarely explored and which result in a perfect combination with other more well-known varieties”, says Luís Sottomayor, the winemaker responsible for Sogrape wines in the Douro. . “The small percentage of grapes harvested from old vines gives even more special characteristics to the final batch”, he concludes.
