Description
Built in the distant year of 1952, Adega Cooperativa de Favaios appears at its genesis, with little more than a hundred members, a reality completely changed half a century later, to about half a thousand members. In the 30s, the Casa do Douro with the new "scoring method" changed the reality of Moscatel de Favaios. The addition of brandy used in the production of Oporto Wine and Moscatel was only possible for vines located at altitudes below 500 meters. Since the region of Favaios is situated on a plateau 630 meters above sea level, the opportunity to produce the already famous traditional Moscatel de Favaios was denied to the farmers, leaving the region into a severe economic and social crisis. In the 50s with the emerging cooperative movement in the country, Favaios farmers saw here an opportunity to organize themselves to fight for their interests: The production of Moscatel de Favaios. And there was born Adega Cooperativa de Favaios.
