Adega do Vulcao is now owned by an Italian family with two generations of marketing, innovative farming and wine-making projects. The viticulture activities are carried out under the supervision of consultant Alberto Antonini.
The overall project is closely monitored and actively supported by the Regional Government of the Azores due to its innovative aspirations and future developments.
The perfect blend of the indigenous Arinto grapes from the '17 and '18 vintages, sourced from the Capelinhos area on the island of Faial – the well-draining, sandy sites from the volcanic ash eruption in 1957 – and from the crusty, many layered basaltic lava flows, or “lajidos” of the Criação Velha in Pico Island, which gives a wine a unique balance.
The wine was fermented and aged in cement for 4 months in a French oak tunnel without toast.
Gorgeous melange of tropical fruits nuanced by fresh, salty ocean minerality and supporting vibrant acidity. A pure delight and the finest Azore wine we have ever tasted.
