The AB Valley Wines arise in 2016, a fruit of a partnership between António Sousa, winemaker in the region, and Bernardo Lencastre, vigneron in the region and a perfect wine lover. The pleasure of making wine and transposing the boundaries of a certain status quo, led these two long-time friends to implement this project.
Working with the grapes that are considered the most important of the region, Alvarinho, Avesso, Arinto, Loureiro and Vinhão, and joining them to others that are gaining very strong roots in this excellent terroir, António Sousa aims to reflect, through his personal imprint, the perfect symbiosis between terroir and varieties, seeking an aromatic equilibrium, on the one hand, and a unique complexity, on the other. This symbiosis resulted in two highly distinct ranges that reflect the potential of the varieties and the different forms of production. Thus, it is possible to experience the aromatic range (representing the A in AB), younger, irreverent and fresh and the aged in barrels (representing B in AB), more serious, fairly complex, balanced and very gastronomic.More
