Tubarão Pet Nat Rosé
The Campos de Masseira da Póvoa de Varzim continue to give rise to this Pét-Nat, in a blend of several grape varieties in which Vinhão and Loureiro predominate.
Produced by the ancestral method of sparkling wine, it gave rise to a wine with some gas and very good acidity. We did the dégorgement for the first time, removing part of the dregs from the inside of the bottle.
We left some bottles ungorged for more explosive customers 🧨
The Masseiras - or Campos de Masseira - are a unique form of agriculture in the world, existing in the parishes of Estela, Navais and Aguçadoura, in Póvoa de Varzim and in the neighboring parishes of Apúlia and Fão, in Esposende. This form of agriculture consists of digging a wide, rectangular hole in the dunes.
On the edges of the cave, known as 'valos', vines are grown in order to protect the central area from the Atlantic winds. In the central area there is fresh water, not salt water as we might suppose, and everything can be cultivated, but large amounts of water and sargassum (to fertilize the soil) are needed for what is cultivated to sprout.
With this cave of just a few meters deep, a thermal increase is achieved, which, together with the 'valos' and the vines that protect the field from the winds, make the troughs work as a kind of greenhouse.
These 'valos' are built with sand removed from the land, which was too much, having functions, for example, to create a microclimate and also to seal the land. It must not be forgotten that the construction of the kneaders was manual, with no machines or transport capable of taking the remaining sand to other locations, remaining on the edges of the land, forming the 'valos'.
This type of agriculture was invented in the 18th century by Benedictine monks from the Abbey of Tibães.
Tubarão Pét-Nat is produced in Atlantic sand soils. Respect and rescue this unique and almost lost culture.
