AB Valley Wines was formed in 2016 by renowned winemaker Antonio Sousa and Bernardo Lencastre. Their idea was to make wines that showcase the indigenous grape varieties of the region with the terroir of Vinhos Verdes sub-region of Amarante. The terroir is ideal for grape growing; Amarante is protected from the influence of the Atlantic, and has a high average altitude, higher temperatures than the regional average, and the hottest summers overall. These conditions favour the development of late-maturing varieties such as Azal and Avesso. The resultant wines have an excellent balance of concentration, alcohol and acidity.
Three new wines - Vinho Verde Loureiro2017, Vinho Verde 'Azal' 2017 and Vinho Verde 'Avesso' 2017.
