The production of the Honrado wine is the result of a familiar project between father and son, with a range of abilities very different from each other, which complement one another.
The father, who once wished to take his wine beyond the borders of Alentejo, allied himself with his son, and thus the wine "Talha" was born - a product that despite having a rejuvenated and differentiated image, has as its fundamental principle the respect for the history, culture, and tradition of Alentejo.
The wine it’s produced in a traditional way through the millenarian technique of fermenting the grape in clay pots. This technique comes from the Roman times and has remained unchanged throughout more than 2000 years of history, passing from grandfathers to parents and from them to their children, through the popular wisdom.
It is in the region of Vila de Frades, a small town in the heart of Alentejo with less than 900 inhabitants, that this tradition has been kept alive, and which is recognized today as "the Capital of Vinho de Talha".
In this experience, we invite you to visit the Cella Vinaria Antiqua Cellar-Museum of Honrado Vineyards and participate in a tasting with a comparison exercise between wines produced with the same grapes, but in different Amphoras.
This is the ideal tasting for those who want to understand the influence that the clay has on the wine during its production. How do 2 wines produced with the same grapes taste so differently? Take this test in traditional tavern glasses and feel like a true 'Alentejano' after a day of work, drinking a glass of wine among friends.
