Vinho Verde- Aphros produces wines that are an expression of their region, reflecting the unique soil conditions and varietals that are exclusive to the Vinho Verde region of Portugal. Vasco Croft leads the team and is one of the pioneers of biodynamic farming and winemaking in Portugal. They harvest from 3 different Quintas, the oldest of which dates back to the 16th century. The sites are farmed using biodynamic techniques, producing harmony between soil, plants, animals, and human activity. No artificial chemicals are added to the soil and only natural compost and manure is used for fertilization. The wines that result from this care of the land are part of the “Slow Wine Movement” that is happening across Portugal.
