Wonderful Example of No Cookie Cutter Wines

October 20, 2009

Malhadinha Nova is a wonderful example of people making wines true to their passion and in harmony with the land. These are wines you will not find in every store, this is what makes them special.

Herdade da Malhadinha Nova was an abandoned farm in the heart of the Alentejo that the Soares brothers bought with their farther in 1998. While it is a working farm, the real reason they wanted the land has to do with their dream of cultivating special vineyards to produce wines that are different from what has been previously made in the area – wines of such high quality that they amaze those who taste them
