On an classic quality basis in the Real Companhia Velha’s range of wines, for many years Evel has earned a solid reputation. Its wines are produced in the famous vineyards the company owns in the Alijó and S. João da Pesqueira districts.
Those vineyards produce the finest white grapes in the region whose blends provide the distinctive flavour and character of Evel.
The year 2017 was essentially characterized by a significantly atypical climate, having this been an extremely hot and dry year all round. Sprouting occurred prematurely, followed by a big advance in the vegetative cycle up until the harvest, due to a continuous evolution in climate conditions. The long absence of precipitation alongside very high temperatures caused meaningful hydric and thermal stress, resulting in one of the earliest harvest campaigns in Douro history, beginning in mid-August with a 3-week advance in comparison to usual timings. Nevertheless, 2017 was a great year in terms of quality, producing classic Reds and remarkable Ports.
