Exploratory, irreverent & Provocative
Non-conformist, disruptive, inconvenient, daring, restless, overwhelming. These are some of the adjectives that define both António Maçanita, winemaker and consultant, and the wines he gets his hands on.
António Maçanita wines are produced in different regions, but with a very firm thread: the historical recovery and appreciation of the inherent characteristics of the grape varieties and regions, not following fashions, but rather creating them, sometimes unwillingly. In António Maçanita's wines and in his production, it is clear his dedication to the terroir and to sustainable local development.Read more

Azores Wine Company Wines
The Azores Wine Company's philosophy is to bring the world to the Azores and take the Azores to the world! Taste the Azores in a glass of wine... taste our "land" and our "sea".
The Azores Wine Company's history begins with the recovery project of Pico Terrantez in 2010, by winemaker António Maçanita and culminates with the founding of the company together with Filipe Rocha.
The Maçanita Wines project was created by the Maçanita brothers in the Douro in 2011. Working side by side in over 14 wineries around the country, Joana and António wanted the Maçanita project to reflect the experiences and desires of the two brothers and winemakers. A lot of laughter, many discussions, and a philosophy of questioning the existing way of doing things. How to show the Douro? And after all, old vines or new vines? Grapes letter A or letter F? Are the grapes for a Vintage wine the best grapes for a table wine? These were questions that were asked, trying to understand the terroir. These four-handed wines had to speak of all these Douro.Read more
