Touriga Nacional, Castelao, Tempranillo; all classic Portuguese grapes from their classic regions. Vinhos Aparte says they save the best reds for this blend, carefully hand harvested and foot tread with only a brief few days on skins, the wine gets gravity decanted to neutral oak barrels where they finish alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. 

Vinhos Aparte is a relatively new winery founded in 2018 in the Setúbal region of Portugal by three friends: Luis, Diego, & Guillermo. Both Guillermo and Diego’s families owned vineyards and made wines, like many people in the area, they sold a majority of the grapes. It wasn't until the guys got together over a forgotten barrel of Moscatel which became “liquid gold” after 6 months undisturbed that their name was first realized and the vision took place.  

This discovery inspired the Vinhos Aparte concept of winemaking, which focuses on giving wines the necessary time and peace to be fully expressive. The winery works with native grape varieties from around Lisbon and ferments its wines wildly in an old warehouse turned winery. All of the grapes are hand-picked, and the wines are made without any additives.
