Menina d´uva is a project born in 2017, when I moved to Uva, the birthplace of my parents, in the region of Planalto Mirandês (in the North-East of Portugal). I left Paris to dedicate myself to safeguarding and sharing the wonderful wine heritage that this region benefits from. In 2018, the vineyard includes three plots of old vines, recovered from the inhabitants of the village. Since then, eight other plots have been added in neighboring villages (3 ha in total). The vines are old and indigenous varieties, deeply adapted to the climate and the soil, they are between 30 and 100 years old. They are based mainly on schist and quartz soils, which promote deep root infiltration. Some plots are located on the rare sedimentary covers of the region. Shallower soils, but more fertile, which more respects the circulation and retention of water. At an altitude of 550 m, the vines benefit from a continental climate, punctuated by long vigorous winters and very dry summers. Between day and night, the large thermal amplitudes allow the grapes to ripen slowly. Agriculture is natural, without synthetic chemicals. It aims to strengthen the vigor of the vines, using plants (nettle) and homemade compost. The life of the soil is stimulated through the reestablishment of the plant cover, composed of legumes and grasses. In the cellar, the bunches arrive whole in the vats (for the reds) and are pressed slowly, with a vertical manual press (for the white and the rosé). They ferment naturally, without the addition of yeast or additives, with little or no sulphites. The wines are aged mainly in stainless steel vats to preserve the expression of the terroir, and bottled by gravity with a minimum dose of sulphites (30-40 mg / L of total SO2), without fining or filtration.
