The Almeida family is known mostly for their Port, while Mateus’ grandfather is known for making Barca Velha – one of the most iconic and important dry wines made in the Douro. Winemaking is a family affair for Mateus as he is married to Spanish winemaker Teresa Ameztoi who is known for producing amazing Txakoli wines. The ‘Trans Douro Express’ wines focus on the three different regions from which the grapes are sourced. This wine is from Cima Corgo, the center of the Douro. A salty nose introduces a lighter palate with juicy fruit notes like plum and raspberry that are balanced by zesty blood orange and velvety tannins.

Pairings:
Bifanas - the national Portuguese pork sandwich
