Muxagat Tinta Barroca is sourced from a north-facing parcel in Meda with an altitude of 600 meters. The soil is a combination of schist and granite. The wine, which is 100% Tinta Barroca, is cold fermented in cement tanks with indigenous yeasts.
|This wine pairs well with spicy foods, light meats, cheese, or simply by itself.
|Muxagat Vinhos started as a small garage winery in 2002 in the tiny village of Muxagata, owned by husband and wife winemakers Mateus Nicolau de Almeida and Teresa Ameztoy. They quickly found success with their delightful, inventive wines and moved the following year to a winery in Meda. Abandoned during the revolution in 1974, the Meda winery’s sparkling granite walls and lagars make visitors feel as if they’ve stepped into a time capsule.
The first Muxagat harvest in 2002 produced 5000 bottles of red wine. In 2003, it produced 6000 bottles of white wine. The goal is to gradually increase quantities to 50,000 bottles a year while still producing top-quality wines from traditional Douro varietals.
