Concept

In this island, for more than 500 years, vines are planted in the rock cracks, less than 50m from the ocean, where one can hear the “crabs singing”. After phyloxera and oidium’s devastating attack in the XIX century, the stubborn Pico´s Man maintained a small pocket of vineyards that resisted to extinction. This “Vinha Centenária” it’s from one of those vineyards with more than 100 years that are guardian of the Azores exclusive grape varietals and witness of the traditional vineyards composition.
