Vadio's winemaker, Luis Patrao is doing it right! In 2017 Vadio was awarded Wine & Spirits Magazine’s top 100 wineries in the world. Luis founded Vadio in 2005 with his family’s small 1.2 acre vineyard in Bairrada. He brought on his father to farm the grapes and rehabbed an old rural pharmacy as his winery.
Bairrada is located close to the Atlantic, and the average vineyard size is a mere .05 acre. For decades, about 17,000 of the region’s 50,000 acres of vines have been abandoned by younger generations who inherited the land yet choose to live in the city. Young winemakers like Luis are seizing the opportunity to acquire vines and make the classic still and sparkling wines that rarely leave the region.
Bright, lifted and refreshing, this sparkling has notes of fresh strawberries and citrus. Produced in the classic Champagne method from 30 year old vines in a region known for sparkling wine and suckling pig!
