The Dao, in north-central Portugal, has a more temperate climate compared to the coastal regions, and it has the potential to make some of Portugal's most elegant, finessed wines. João Tavares de Pina's wines are based around pre-modern winemaking philosophies, using "grapes, water to clean his equipment and a touch of sulfur at bottling," according to his importer. This was the way his father made wine, too. 

The Rufia Branco is a cloudy white, not orange, but textural and earthy. Marcona almond, salt, meyer lemon, and apricot notes with a stony, fresh edge. A blend of indigenous varieties Bical, Encruzado, 25% Cereal Branco and 15% Malvasia, fermented in steel and aged with extended less contact. No filtering, vegan, and less than 15 mg/L of free sulfur. [Jonathan Kemp, April 2022]
