Grand'Arte Chardonnay 2015

Very aromatic, fruity, rich, with a perfect acidity, who gives an excellent freshness and a pleasant and persistent end of tasting. João Paulo Martins; Vinhos de Portugal 2016; "Discreet aroma of the varietal but focused on green fruit, here combining a vegetable side with green apple aromas. Very round and soft acidity to allow fresh and tasty tasting, full of ripe fruit but elegant. It is a good example of the variety in a very consensual version because everyone will like. Do not expect to find here a white to compare with this or that region. This is from Lisbon and is very well done."

Vega Douro 2013

Vega (α Lyr, α Lyrae, Alpha Lyrae) is the brightest star in the constellation Lyra, the fifth brightest star in the night sky and the third brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere, after Sirius and Arcturus. It is a relatively close star at only 25 light-years from Earth, one of the most luminous stars in the Sun's neighborhood. The word comes from the Arabic "al-wāqi '" "an-nasr al-wāqi', which means' eagle landing." Ancient peoples identified their region of the sky making the figure of a bird, including the eagle. Vega is also known as the Star of the Harp because of Lira, the official name of the constellation in which the star is located. The Lira is usually linked to the Greek legend of Orpheus. Curious to note that in the heady days of the constellation star charts Lira appeared decorated with a bird, a connection of the Greek version with the older forms of the constellation. The famous scientist and writer Carl Sagan, writing one of his greatest literary successes, Contact – then a box office success film of the same name, puts Vega as a meeting point of a civilization infinitely more advanced than ours.

Company details

THE WINEMAKER JOSÉ NEIVA CORREIA

Born and raised on a wine and vineyard estate that many historians deem one of the longest established in the council of Alenquer and whose origins stretch back prior to the founding of the nation of Portugal - the Quinta de Porto Franco. It is from the excellence of this estate that José Neiva Correia, born in 1949 and one of the most productive winemakers in the country, sources much of the raw material put into producing the very best DFJ Vinhos wines. This was the company he launched over a decade ago and that has now reached an average annual production level of six million bottles, across 40 brands and 110 different wines deriving from all mainland Portuguese regions, from the Douro down to the Algarve, except the Vinhos Verdes region.

Descending from generations dedicated to the art of viniculture, both on his father's and his mother's sides, José Neiva Correia followed in his family's traditions not only out of preference but also with thorough professionalism. Those who know and work with him make regular mention of his creativity and the enthusiasm that goes into each of his many and sharply differing wines with their blend of improbable grape varieties and surprising results. Whether top of the range, high priced and produced in restricted quantities or in mass volumes designed to meet the needs of the major international markets, the demand for quality in the final product never wavers whatever the circumstances. His knowledge is extensive and underpins everything he does.

As a winemaker, he has played a pioneering role both in the introduction of new varieties in Portugal and in promoting healthy agricultural practices.

Furthermore, he has contributed towards solutions found for the major problems facing the wine sector such as the appropriate sealing of wine bottle corks. Rigorous and keen on investigation, he has developed and patented a method for disinfecting the corks using ozone that has since been sold onto Grupo Amorim. This has helped in reducing the level of undesirable TCA (the Trichloroanisol compound causing the "musty smell"), a great threat to wine making.

As the sixth of eight children, José Neiva Correia still remains owner, in partnership with his brothers and sisters, of Rui Abreu Correia, Herdeiros, one of the largest agricultural holdings in Estremadura that tends, among other crops, 200 hectares of vineyards located across the councils of Alenquer and Torres Vedras.
