Aphros, Loureiro, Vinho Verde, Portugal, 2020
Overview of the Wine
Aphros winery is the brainchild of Lisbon architect Vasco Croft. Interested in Steiner’s philosophy since his youth, he naturally followed the path of biodynamics. Mountain horses, sheep, bees and special water cascades are part of the farm life. The vines, carefully managed through cover crops, are treated with home made plant extracts. Being made from brandy, these preparations have their origin in the same vines they are destined to treat. The wines, ranging from still to classic method sparkling and Pet Nats, are based on local varieties Loureiro and Vinhão and made with low intervention protocols, using only indigenous yeasts and a minimum of sulphites.
