“A 23 year old winemaker and an English viticulturist could only go wrong”
Portuguese winemaker António Maçanita and resident English viticulture consultant, David Booth met for the first time in early 2004. Over the next few months António was learning viticulture with David and a close friendship developed. Next step doing some wine, first wine, first success, with Trophy Alentejo Award by IWC, given the second time in 22 years of competition. Fitapreta produces wines that reflect our character, what we like, what we aspire, our mood and our perception of aesthetics. We are as much about diving deep in our culture and varietals, as we are about changing the world with new trials, new tastes and new blends. We produce the wines for us, for us to like it. And hopefully, some people will share our same aesthetics for wine and… Who knows… For life.
