In the 70’s, due to the climate of Azeitão, where Quinta da Bacalhôa is located,
it was decided to produce a wine of the most famous French grapes, Cabernet
Sauvignon and Merlot. In 1979 was born the Quinta da Bacalhôa, the first
Portuguese Cabernet Sauvignon. It was decided to bring to the market a wine that
was vinified in its entirety in new oak, with an innovative concept for Portuguese
winemaking.

    Background Info

    The vineyard planted at Quinta da Bacalhôa finds the ideal “terroir” for the production of excellent wines - red and well drained limestone soils with mild climate due to the strong Atlantic influence. The grapes chosen in Quinta’s vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, benefit from natural conditions for slow and balanced maturation. After the fermentation of the elementary wines at controlled temperature, a period of ‘cuvaison’ (post-fermentative skin maceration) of a week was followed. With a careful selection, contemplating numerous tests and analyzes, the final lot was created which staged in new French oak barrels for 13 months
