    Winemaker Notes

    Garnet red in appearance, The Conde Villar Tinto Regional is intensely fruity with aromas of red fruits, giving way to a soft and velvety palate with well-structured tannins and acidity.

    Pairs perfectly with beef brisket or wood fired pizzas.

    Conde Villar, Alentejo, Portugal
    Quinta das Arcas, which produces Conde Villar and Tapada de Villar wines, is a family owned winery that was founded in 1985 by Antonio Esteves Monteiro. The family owns significant vineyard holdings in both the DOC Vinho Verde (Minho) as well as DOC Alentejo. In the Vinho Verde region where the company is headquartered, the production is obtained from three estates, totaling more than 295 acres (120 hectares) of vineyardS. Further south, in Alentejo, the winery’s holdings included 150 acres (60 hectares) of vineyards with Portuguese and international varieties highly adapted to the region and also 75 acres (30 hectares) of olive trees. The winery also engages in cheese-making from cow’s milk produced on the estate.

    Responsible for a majority of Portugal’s fine wine production—and over half of the world’s cork production—Alentejo represents a major force in Portugal’s wine industry. This southern Portugese region is characterized by stretches of rolling plains and vineyards dotted with majestic cork oaks. Access to land enables the farmers of Alentejo to produce wines in great economies of scale, without compromising quality, compared to those regions to the north. The region of Alentejo indeed covers a third of the country.

    Its classified (DOP) wines must come from one of eight subregions, where elevations are a bit higher, air cooler and less fertile soils are perfect for vines. The optimal regions are Portalegre, Borba, Redondo, Reguengos de Monsaraz, Granja-Amareleja, Vidigueira, Evora and Moura. Alentejo is not without the conveniences of modern winemaking as well. Irrigation supplements low rainfall and temperature control in the winery assures high quality wines.

    The potential of the area has attracted many producers and its wine production continues to grow. Alentejo’s charming, fruit-forward wines have naturally led to local and global popularity.

    White wines tend to be blends of Antão Vaz, Roupeiro and Arinto. However, in growing proportions, the white grapes Verdelho, Alvarinho and Viognier have been enjoying success. But red varieties actually exceed whites in Alentejo. Aragonez, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet and Castelão grapes blend well together and are responsible for most of the Alentejo reds.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
