It is always the sensational highlight of a guided tour to see the barrique cellar. The reserve wines and premium wines of “Colheita Seleccionada” (special harvest) mature here after fermentation. We store the barriques containing our best wines at a controlled room temperature, thus refining this traditional method of using the breathability of the natural wood and the release of the tannins from the oak to enhance the maturation of the wine. After being stored for up to a year in the finest French oak, the wine is bottled and put in our bottle cellar where it rests until Carlos Ramos and Dorina decide that the wine is ready for the market.
