The Séries wine line represents the passion for innovation and experimentation in the search for new styles. This project highlights the behind-the-scenes work developed by Real Companhia Velha's Oenology and Viticulture team, through a range of more than 30 native varieties (some close to extinction) planted in our farms over the last 20 years. The "Séries" wine line represents the passion for innovation, experimentation and demand for new wines and styles.
Rufete is a very old grape variety, which has always been present in the old Douro vineyards, but has never been among the most famous casts of the region. With an elegant profile, soft tannin, but with wild and rustic expressions.
Rufete presented itself with one of the most interesting varieties that comes from the Douro region in recent times.It is worth noting that deep inside us we find a new Douro in the old Douro.
Very old variety and present in the old vineyards of the Douro, has a profile of little color, generating a wine with structure and volume of mouth, unlike what is sought today in the Douro.Vinification and stage
