Tubarão

Tubarão, a collaboration between Marcio Lopes and Ricardo Garrido, is dedicated to making low-intervention wines that help preserve some of the nearly extinct forms of farming found in Portugal, such as masseira.

Masseira was first created by Benedictine monks in northern Portugal near the Atlantic in the 18th century. Large, rectangular pits with sloped sides were dug into the sandy dunes near the ocean. Vines are grown on the sloped sides (“valos”) to help protect them from the wind, while various fruits, vegetables and grains are grown on the floor of the masseira to create a rich polyculture. The result is very much like a greenhouse, where the depression creates a rich, warm microclimate.
