Wine from the Portuguese Azores means an Atlantic ocean injection. In the Azores, a group of islands in the Atlantic Ocean about 1400 kilometers west of Lisbon, wine has been made since the sixteenth century. But so little that you hardly ever see the Azores wines on the European mainland. They produce around 20,000 liters per year, which is about the annual harvest in the Azores. It is all white and a large part is reinforced with alcohol. The wine is made from typical Portuguese grapes, such as the Verdelho and the Arinto. What is also unknown, but certainly not unloved by the wine connoisseur, because the Azores have a great wine climate. The sea wind ensures healthy grape vines that do not require chemical intervention. Moisture, sun and a large difference in temperature make the wines of the Azores incredibly beautiful. Without a doubt, the most famous and renowned winery in the Azores is Azores Wine Company. They may have one of the most unique terroirs in the world, in the middle of the Atlantic, and at the foot of the volcanic mountain Pico, the vineyards are planted in the fractures of the rocks, next to the sea, where you can " singing the crabs "belongs, because there is more sun and warmth.

This 100% Arinto dos Açores is an original variety and exclusive to the Azores Islands. In the nose salty, little mushroom and aromas with notes of grapefruit. In the mouth a very present minerality and acidity, good persistence and salty tones. This wine is a perfect accompaniment to nicely baked cod, plaice or dab (but is delicious with every sea fish). 4,970 bottles were produced.
