Are you in the mood for a wine that's a bit of a renegade? Tiago Sampaio's 'Renegado' blend is here to shake things up with its fresh, light, and dangerously drinkable taste. This wine pays tribute to the humble and straightforward vino that Douro grape growers have made for their own consumption – (aka 'vinho do consumo' in the local lingo).
Crafted from an old vineyard that's bursting with a mix of red and white grapes, this rebellious blend is fermented together with gentle handling and absolutely zero oak. The result is a wine that's as playful and light as a feather. Think of it as a rosé with attitude, or a spicy vin de soif. It is apparently the only one of Tiago’s wines that his dad deigns to drink.
Meet Tiago Sampaio, the winemaker behind Olho no Pé and Folias de Baco, now bottling his exceptional blends as Uivo. Grown at elevations up to 700m, his wines boast distinctive textures and flavors. Don't miss his captivating pét-nats and the refreshing, floral aroma of Moscatel Gallego grapes. With a PhD in viticulture and oenology from Oregon, Tiago embraces a natural winemaking approach – no added yeast, no filtration, and no fining at bottling. He operates from the old co-op winery building in Sanfins do Douro, showcasing antique talhas gifted by Vasco Croft. Follow Tiago's wine adventures by keeping an eye on the label.
