Wine

Sample Wine Menu

Putting out mission statements tends to erode credibility, but, as the song goes, we want to accentuate the positives in our list.

Those positives that we aim to promote are:

  • The importance of sustainable, organic viticulture
  • Diversity of style and indigenous grape varieties
  • The endeavours of small independent growers
  • Wines of terroir and typicity
  • And finally delicious & tasty

We work from the point of view of understanding the wine by trying to understand the country, the region, the microclimate, the vineyard and the grower.

Every wine tells a story and that story deserves to be told.

 

Sergio dos Santos AIWS

DOWNLOAD WINE LIST   

Organic wine: Is wine made from grapes grown in accordance with principles of organic farming, which typically excludes the use of artificial chemical fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides

Biodynamic wine: Is a method of organic farming originally developed by Rudolf Steiner that employs what proponents describe as "a holistic understanding of agricultural processes": One of the first sustainable agriculture movements, it treats soil fertility, plant growth, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks, emphasizing spiritual and mystical perspectives. Proponents of biodynamic agriculture, including Steiner, have characterized it as "spiritual science" as part of the larger anthroposophy movement.
