Lavradores de Feitoria Douro Tinto 2019
Red Wine from Portugal
Ripe black fruits with a hint of spice and the tannin cut that makes the reds from Portugal's Douro Valley so good with protein, and this makes a great cheeseboard standby too.

Lavradores de Feitoria
Lavradores de Feitoria is an eighteen producer co-operative in the Douro valley, based at the impressive Mateus palace and sourcing from nineteen quintas across all three of the Douro's sub-regions (Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo, Douro Superior).
Feitoria is the old Portuguese word for a shared winery, and the new label design on the Lavradores range shows a beautifully drawn circle of bees, the perfect metaphor, they say, for this community of eighteen farmers (lavradores), with family-owned vineyards throughout the Douro. The growers are committed to sustainability in the vineyards, and balance, freshness and elegance in the glass. The winemaker here is Paulo Ruão, formerly of Ramos Pinto, with Dirk Niepoort on-hand as consultant if required. The wines focus on blends of up to forty available local grape varieties.
