2017 Tinto Vulcânico Açores red
Located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, the Azores islands are made up of volcanic soils and have a typically maritime climate. Though having high precipitation and atmospheric moisture, temperatures are mild throughout the year. This way, the vines have to be planted in soils where they are naturally sheltered or protected by man. Stone walls are built to protect the vines from the wind and the sea salty air.
