Monte Velho 2021 Red Wine PORTUGAL
With a distinctly Alentejo profile, Monte Velho Red Wine aims to transmit the uniqueness of the Alentejo and the quality of Herdade do Espor wines to more people.
A wine for every occasion. With a balanced and gastronomic profile, it offers the best aromas and flavours of Alentejo grapes.
Launched for the first time in 1992, its name comes from the monte located next to the Caridade reservoir, at Herdade do Esporão. At the time, the wine boasted the same origin and philosophy as Esporão Reserva but was created to reach more people and make daily wine consumption an experience.
Produced according to the region’s winegrowing tradition, the variety of grapes and vinification techniques demonstrate the character of the region from whence it comes rich aromas, a smooth palate and an excellent gastronomic bent.
Made with grapes from throughout the region, it is the result of partnerships lasting over 15 years with suppliers from the different sub-regions, who use the same integrated production system as Esporão. These sustainable practices, which preclude the use of pesticides and herbicides, are crucial to soil quality and fertility, which provide the vineyard with natural protection that influences the quality of the wines.
Ever faithful to its roots, Monte Velho is the Alentejo in a glass, coming to represent a benchmark of the region in Portugal and the world over the years.
