"There goes Fausto to his Bágeiras vineyard"
That's how the population of Fogueira named the project created in 1989. Fausto was the paternal grandfather, whose vineyards collected with others from the maternal grandfather to establish the first wine company in Bairrada in over 20 years. With the paramount support of my father Abel, 12 hectares of vineyard that until then produced wine sold in bulk were transformed into wines bottled with the brand. Another 16 hectares were later added to the original vineyard area, always in the best Bairrada terroir.
Their belief was a simple one: wanted the production of our wines to be accomplished through traditional methods, without ignoring the constant developments observed in the fields of viticulture and oenology.
That is why, for example, all the grapes are handpicked, red wines are produced in lagares without added yeasts and why sparkling wines have no residual sugar. I believe quality means nothing without identity.
Therefore, they respect wine as it respects them and always devote to it as a family, with a passion that has lasted for three generations.
