Monte da Carochinha Arinto Reserva

Península de Setúbal

11.07 

This wine’s story could begin the way many children’s stories begin: “Once upon a time, a little beetle wanted to plant a vineyard and make its own wine… a wine that could capture the aromas and tastes of its home looking out on the ocean on the Alentejo coast.”

This is the narrative the producers created to support their work and tell the world about what they’re doing.

The Estate is located in the village of Sonega, between Sines and Cercal, and has a privileged view of the ocean at Porto Covo. What a view it is. What a view!

The vineyard at Monte da Carochinha (little beetle) is born from a dream to relive childhood memories on the Alentejo coast and create a wine with solid depth influenced by the hard-to-match freshness of the Atlantic breeze.

So, to guarantee the quality of the wines they produce, they entrusted the oenology to Filipe Sevinate Pinto, who gave them a touch of magic. The natural freshness that the proximity of the Atlantic gives them makes these wines unforgettable.

As they say on the Estate, “nothing like a dream to move a person and nothing like wine to move dreams”.

The Alentejo is indeed an impressive land, if only for many incredible wine producers. You kick a rock and… puff! An incredible wine pops out.

You’re going to have to try this Arinto Reserva to see, once again, that we’re not exaggerating or pulling your leg.

For the perfect meal, take a look at the Seabass with Coriander Rice on the back of this card and imagine the incredible meal you’re about to have.

We’ll toast to that.

Cheers!
