The winemaking is low intervention, he ferments in small stainless steel tanks using natural yeasts, aiming to make wines with balance that reflect his terroir. The wine is then kept on fine lees for five months in stainless steel tanks before bottling with light filtration. Top quality Vinho Verde perfecet for when the sun is shining or whenever really.

Notes on the producer

Márcio Lopes studied as an engineer, but cut his winemaking teeth working for two years with Vinho Verde master Anselmo Mendes in Melgaço. He then traveled to Australia where he made wine in Rutherglen and Tasmania, another cool climate region. He returned to Portugal in 2010 to start his own projects, including Pequenos Rebentos in Vinho Verde. His winemaking is low intervention, he ferments using natural yeasts, and like many of our producers he believes that if the fruit is good enough he will make quality wines with balance that reflect his terroir. This seems to be working - his wines are distinctively fresh and vibrant, showing bright and clear typical variety aromas.
