Vidigal Julia Florista Red

$16.70

The Vidigal winery is a family run estate located close to the city of Leiria, roughly halfway between Lisbon and Porto. Originally founded by a Church Canon in the early 20th century, it was purchased by António Mendes Lopes in the 1990’s. Lopes has over 30 years of experience in the wine industry as a wine importer in Norway. To assist him with winemaking he has employed two oenologists: António Ventura and Rafael Neuparth. The winery has access to around 450 hectares of vineyards in Lisboa through a series of partnerships with local grape growers. Unsurprising for a wine importer, Lopes exports around 90% of the wineries total production.

“Júlia Florista (1883-1925): Flower seller during the day, Fado singer at night. A true bohemian soul known in the old streets of Lisbon and taverns alike for her breathtaking fado singing. Her life and death had all the ingredients of a fado song… (Although short lived she left us 2 precious vinyl records named: “Espirito Fado”). We dedicate this wine to her memory.” – Vidigal
