Mouchão Red Wine 2013
At the beginning of the 19th century, Thomas Reynolds migrated to the Alentejo region with the goal of the cork business. Three generations later, his grandson John Reynolds acquired Herdade do Mouchão for the production of wines. Several vineyards were planted, in 1901 a traditional winery was built and in 1929, the distillery was installed, the same one that is still used today to produce Mouchão brandy. Today Herdade do Mouchão continues to be managed and worked by the descendants of the original family. The entire winemaking process remains practically untouchable, preserving the traditional harvest by hand and the fermentation of grapes in stone mills with treading feet. In a constantly evolving oenological world, Herdade do Mouchão remains as it has always been, a family tradition.
