Bojo do Luar Deu Branco is a low-intervention white wine made with the native varietals Avesso and Ava. The parcels are located near the Tâmega River, with deep granitic soils and south-south-western exposure, not too far from where it empties into the Douro River. Each grape varietal was vinified separately in stainless steel and concrete. As a stabilizer, ground chestnut leaves were added before fermentation starts. There was minimal intervention throughout the entire process in the cellar.
The Bojo do Luar project came to life during a trip Savio Soares made to vineyards near the Tamego River. Here he met Fernando Paiva, an innovative biodynamic wine producer making wines with minimal sulfites and adding ground chestnut flowers to tanks before fermentation. With Fernando's winemaking experience and openness to experiment using a non-intervention approach in the cellar, the Bojo do Luar wines quickly took shape. Not only were the results promising, but the wines easily became popular. The region has a mostly cool temperate climate throughout Spring, followed by hot days and cool nights until the September harvest. Each variety is vinified separately with minimal intervention.
