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 preparation of this wine begins at the vine, where the best grapes of Muscatel are selected and gathered at the pinnacle moment of ripeness . Fermentation takes place during around three days with intense pellicular maceration and at temperature controlled conditions of 15-16ºC. Spirit is added to the grapes interrupting fermentation to obtain a wine with elevated alcoholic content and residual sugar. The maceration with the presence of spirit remains for 5-6 days more at a low temperature. Ageing int vats of Oak during 4-5 years follows where the integration with the spirit is completed. After the ageing process, the wines of the best harvests are chosen to obtain the best blend with a average age of 4 years.|
