Chinado Pet Nat Rosado is an organic rose wine made by João Tereso using indigenous grape varietals from the northern Lisboa region in the center of Portugal.

João Tereso is a live sound engineer by trade. You’re more likely to find him behind a large mixing console than in a vineyard. But that all changed when he learned that his grandfather’s old vineyard in Alcobaça was about to be sold by the family. Tereso had more than a little sentiment about the vines, as some of his earliest memories were of stomping grapes at Grandpa’s house – when he was no more than two years old. He now works a total of five different vineyards spread over a few hillsides. Tereso’s style of winemaking is stripped down and simple – just letting these venerable old vines speak their minds. A pinch of sulfur is the only additive in the whole process. And where Martins sometimes opts to ferment in steel tanks, just about all of the Chinado wines are fermented and matured in a clutch of used and even more used barrels. The results are wines that have exactly the right balance between refinement and rusticity. As was typical with plantings back in the 1940s, many of his vineyards contain a mix of red and white varieties, with some Baga, Castelão, Vital, Fernão Pires and a number of unidentified indigenous varieties. 

Chinado Pet Nat Rosado is an organic rose wine made with a field blend of native grapes. The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed, and macerated for 16 days. The must was fermented in stainless steel vats without temperature control and then bottled before fermentation was complete. Bottles aged in cellar for 8 months.
