Ratings

3.80 / 5.0750 ml@Lo Kyiv

This traditional sparkling wine made from Vinhão is a departure from the everyday, offering a unique tasting experience. Despite its age, it maintains a fresh and fruit-forward bouquet, subtly enhanced by traces of lees ageing. The aroma is an inviting mix of barberry candy, sweet bakery notes, and cranberry. While not overly complex, it possesses a round and approachable quality, proving to be pleasantly easy-going. The wine's charm lies in its simplicity, making it an enjoyable and straightforward drink.

Aphros

Vasco Croft is the person behind Aphros. As a teen, he dreamed about becoming an astrologist, yet after some consideration, he decided to study architecture. But after discovering Steiner's philosophy, Vasco went to England to study pedagogy and sculpture, where he discovered an interest in woodworking and furniture design. It was enough for a few years until, in his thirties, he met a Buddhist monk. They shared a bottle of wine. For Vasco, it was a meeting with Dionysus himself. This encounter changed his life. As a result, in 2003, he started a wine project in Casal do Paço, a semi-abandoned property belonging to his family since the 17th century.
