Interview with Vasco Magalhães of Herdade do Peso wine estate, winemaker and now technical communications director for the Sogrape group, owner of H do Peso and one of Portugal’s biggest wine producers.
We’re in the middle of the Peso vineyards a hot, sunny day just after grape harvest. Vasco talks about traditional Portuguese grape varieties. For example, for white wines: Antao Vaz, Arinto and for red wines: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca (or Francesa), Tinto Roriz (Tempranillo), Aragones, Trincadeira.
Sogrape makes wine for example in Alentejo (where H. do Peso is) and also in the Douro region east of Porto.
Winery: Herdade do Peso, Alentejo, Portugal.
