Quinta da Prelada
Our Ports are made using traditional winemaking processes, after destemming, the grapes are crushed in lagares, where they ferment for 2 or 3 days. This operation, known as treading, is traditionally done by men. During this period, successive steps are taken to maximize the extraction of coloring matter and other components that will give structure and longevity to the wines.
