The stage was the Restaurant Rei dos Leitões to present a special white wine produced by Caves São Domingos - "Lopo de Freitas", 100% Viognier of the harvest of 2016. Bairrada is a region with exceptional conditions to make great whites, a privileged location near the Atlantic, sandy-clay soils that during the day enjoy excellent sun exposure and mild nights. Our house has a domain of 100 hectares in different areas of Bairrada and has a wide range of white varieties with excellent acidity, moderate graduation and a huge potential for aging.
This was the challenge accepted by us, to produce a white wine of excellence under the Denomination of Origin Bairrada with a difficult variety, little known and existing in trace amounts.
