We have tried many varieties of the red wines and have found all to be of very good quality. The service is also very good and orders are usually delivered within a week. I have recommended this company to family and friends.

Winemaking:
Charme is all about elegance and balance, achieved by taking special attention to the smallest details during the entire wine-making process. Made in traditional stone lagares with 100% grape stems, Charme’s elegance is achieved using grapes from very old vineyards in Vale de Mendiz, on the banks of the Pinhão River. Vineyard burst was uncommonly early in 2011, all the cycle was anticipated and harvest started earlier than ever, nevertheless higher planted vineyards went slower, and when harvest ended all wines presented a good quantity of total acidity. Fermentation was done with all the stems, in traditional stone lagares and foot treading. After a short maceration, alcoholic and malolactic fermentations were finished in French oak barrels, where the wine aged for 17 months. Bottling was carried out on the 20th February of 2013 without any fining or filtration.

Grape Varieties:
Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca
