You will like to know that…

The first wine produced by Esporão in 1985 is a consistent blend of the vine varieties Aragonez, Trincadeira, Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicante Bouschet. A great representative of the Alentejo with its characteristic notes of ripe red fruit and creamy, well-integrated wood.

It is a red wine that can be enjoyed from now on, although its tannins will develop as it matures to offer even greater pleasure. This 2017 vintage has an illustration by artist António Poppe on its label.

The Esporao Reserva 2017 is a Portuguese red wine that offers excellent value for money.

Red wine from Alentejo, Portugal, lovingly prepared by Bodegas Herdade do Esporão, by a curious blend of grapes from which it is a complex wine, structured and floral.
A different wine designed to enjoy it.
