In the Talha wine month, Alentejo Wine Route brings together specialists from this ancestral tradition
The initiative is free and intends to explore some curiosities about Talha wines.

Next Friday, November 19, the Alentejo Wine Route will host a free initiative that brings together specialists in carved wines and goes back more than 2 thousand years to demystify some curiosities of this ancestral tradition, which is part of the DNA of the Alentejo wine region. The meeting starts at 18:00 and all interested parties will be able to participate in the conversation through the digital platform, Zoom, or watch through YouTube.
The initiative will put on the table the millenary process of vinification in Talha and all the challenges of maintaining this tradition in an unparalleled way and will have as interveners Ana Marreiros, vice president of the City Council of Vidigueira, Alexandre Frade, president of the Producers Association of Talha Wine, Carlos Cristo, coordinator of the Talha Wine Interpretive Center, and Ruben Honrado, managing partner of Honrado Vineyards.
The production of Talha wines is a niche that represents around 119 thousand of the more than 113 million liters produced by the Alentejo region, accounting for a total of 25 producers. This particular wine has conquered more and more connoisseurs, with emphasis on the markets of Japan, the United States of America and Brazil.
It should be remembered that vinification by carving arrived in Alentejo by the hands of the Romans, more than 2,000 years ago and remains, to this day, as part of the region's culture and DNA. This unique wine is essentially distinguished by the fact that it ferments spontaneously in the jar – through contact with clay – instead of in vats, giving it unique characteristics.
