Vinification
2014 was characterized by above average rainfall throughout the year, particularly in January, February, July and September. There were unusual storms during June and July. In terms of average temperatures, January was above the usual average and August fresher than what is common in the region 
 Cristiano van Zeller, Joana Pinhão and Francisca van Zeller
Quinta Vale D. Maria “Vinha do Rio” grapes are foot trodden and fully fermented in lagares for 7 to 10 days at temperatures ranging from 22° 
to 27° Celsius. The resulting wines are then racked into new Allier French oak 225-liter casks from various coopers, namely from François 
Frères and Taransaud, where they go through malolactic fermentation. The final choice of casks and the blending happened between May and 
June of the second year after the harvest. The wine is normally bottled two to three weeks after the blending.
