Tiago Teles ‘Raiz - Branco’ Loureiro Bairrada, Portugal 2018

Regular price $28.00

Tiago Teles had been dreaming about owning a winery since he was just a pup, and in 2012 he got his chance. With a little help from his pops and his mantra 'Freedom and Friendship,' Tiago planted vines to local Bairrada varieties and is making wine like a champ. He treats his vines and his community with much respect, co-fermenting varieties and using a hands-off approach in the cellar. The wines are fresh, fleshy and clean. 

The Raiz Tinto Branco is 100% Loureiro, spends two months on stems and skins, ages in concrete vats and comes out flexin'. Flesh, texture, medium body and bright acidity. This wine pairs fabulously with fresh grilled fish, cheese or sausage.
