Vale dos Ares, Alvarinho, Vinho Verde, Monção & Melgaco, Portugal, 2020
Pineapple and citrus aromas harmoniously blend together with minerality and refreshing acidity to create a well-integrated and balanced white wine that has a smooth and long lasting finish.

Santos & Seixo, Duquesa Maria Superior Tinto Red, Vinho Regional Alentejano, Portugal, 2017
From a blend of traditional varietals, this wine, from grapes harvested in the first light of day, has concentrated ruby color with good aromatic intensity where the notes of blackberry and plum are highlighted. In the mouth it has soft and elegant tannins with good acidity that gives it freshness.

Santos & Seixo, Perspectiva Reserva, Douro, Portugal, 2016
Deep ruby color and intense aroma to ripe red fruits with nuances of black plum. Flavor is presented with solid and well present tannings, with elegant and deep finish.
