The history of Favaios is lost in time. Its name stems from "Flavius", an ancient Roman settlement that used to belong to the territory of Panóias. It was in this town in the Demarcated Douro Region that, since 1952, the Favaios Cooperative Wine Cellar became on of the largest and most renowned in the country due to unmistakeable quality of its Aperitivo and Moscatel de Favaios. Recent investments over the last few years, along with major strategic decisions and a bold vision are driving Adegga COOP de Favaios to new successes.
The Adega Cooperativa de Favaios mission is to continue to promote Moscatel de Favaios as one of the most important categories of Portuguese Wines and expand internationally their markets like the Oporto Wine. The winery also wants to contribute to the socio-economic development of its associates and be one of the most important centres of regional development. The vision is to be, until 2012, the largest "Adega Cooperativa do Douro", leading the innovation of Moscatel de Favaios to offer unique experiences for consumers, as well as develop a diversified portfolio of Wines beyond Muscat.
|-||The best grapes are selected to ferment for around 5 days, during this period the must is aloud to sit in contact with the skins allowing the aromatic muscatel qualities infuse. The fermentation is interrupted with the addition of spirit. A process of aging begins subsequently in casks of chestnut where the wines evolve more complex qualities before bottling.|
|Already with some fragrance of a coffee-roasting house, it presents also notes of honey, orange and raisins.|
Limpid, bright and of golden hues
It is a full-bodied but very harmonious wine in the mouth. Sufficient sweetness in the taste, followed by dry results where honey predominate.
