Ninfa Escolha 

João Teodósio Matos Barbosa founded his winery in 1997, and by 1999 the first vineyard was planted in Vale de Junco, Esperança, Portalegre. The wines were first made available on the global market in 2005, after a small production in 2004 in the vineyard of Valle de Junco. Years later, after buying a plot of land on the slopes of Serra d'Aire and Candeeiros, Barbosa planted their second vineyard planted on steep slopes at an altitude of 330 to 385 meters. Their philosophy has always been to approach wine production in the most hands-off, natural way possible.

Harvest is an incredibly important time for Barbosa and is completed over the course of a month and a half. Grapes are carefully selected and ones at their optimal ripeness are retained. The harvest team consists of friends, colleagues, relatives, and business partners, who all join together and partake. Barbosa firmly believes that everyone's involvement in harvest will lead to a superior product in the bottle.

The soils are rich in clay and limestone soils. Mediterranean climate with Atlantic influence and south-facing vines that maximise sun exposure help gain grape maturity. A blend of Touriga Nacional and Alfrocheiro, the grapes are hand-picked once the balance between maturation and acidity has been reached. Selected bunches and transported by gravity to a closed stainless steel mill where they undergo a pre-fermentation maceration. The wines are then aged for a minimum of 10 months in French oak barrels.
Taste: This is a bold red wine with notes of black fruits mixed with spices on the palate with a hint of smoke. The bitter cocoa combines with the freshness and subtle notes of oak with elegant tannins.
Cellaring Potential: Enjoy now or cellar for 5+ years.
Food Matching: Barbecued meats or Bife à Cebolada.
