Azevedo

When Fernando Guedes acquired this historic estate in 1982 he immediately set out to transform it, planting 35 hectares of vineyards in this cool, wet part of north-western Portugal, bordered to the north by the Minho River adjacent to Spain, to the west by the Atlantic and to the south by the city of Porto. Traditional overhead pergola systems were derived from the farmers' need to use every piece of land, including that under the trellis. While good for the farmers, this was not ideal for the vine or the wine. Fernando moved away from these high-trained pergolas to cordon-trained vines that provide better exposure for the grapes, which as a result are riper and healthier at harvest.
