Azores Wine Company
The Azores Wine Company was founded on April 3rd, 2014, by the partners António Maçanita, Filipe Rocha and Insula Vinus, Lda.
Their vineyards are on Pico Island and the vines grow in an extremely challenging environment: The vines are planted in the fissures of volcanic rock which is barren with few nutrients. The vineyards are close enough to the sea to have salt water spray and high winds. Stone walled ‘Currais’ protect the vineyards from the winds while creating beneficial microclimates from the vines.
