Typical Day in the Winery

We get grapes and process them into the lagar, and clean up.  Then we wait for the next delivery.  So far, four deliveries today.  We had a visit from the Portuguese Air Force, and Henry walked them through the wine making process.  Lunch over at Quinta do Tua with our colleagues there, then a post prandial kip for the team whilst Henry catches up on paperwork – every batch of grapes is logged in and weighed.

Henry hard at paperwork. No wine without paperwork.

In fact, batch number five just arrived, so the team have just gone out to take care of those, and Senhor Mariz, the viticulturist who oversees Malvedos has just stopped by.
