Making white Port Wine this afternoon – check the video when we’re adding the brandy

Today we have been making white Port Wine. The grapes that we were harvesting during the week-end were transformed into a healthy and aromatic must during the last days, which was ready for the fortification this afternoon. We are considering to follow Andy Velebil’s suggestion, regarding the ageing of our 2009 white Port Wine. He says he loves white colheitas! Thank you Andy for that!  Check the video right in the moment we were adding the brandy! Lot of noise at the winery… sorry!

    Definitely Yashar, Taylor is a very nice and kind child. I hope we can make another video with her decanting a bottle, this time a Quevedo one, at the time of her very first visit to our cellar! I have to propose this to her father!!

    Oscar, Cool video. This is the first time that I can recall ever seeing a video of when the brandy is added. Oh, and thanks for taking into consideration my suggestion. I do love aged White Colheita's, as rare as they may be at the moment. andy
