About the winemaker

Starting in 2003, Vasco Croft set out to revive his family's semi-abandoned property in Casal do Paço, in the Vinho Verde region. A firm believer in Biodynamics (Vasco led the Waldorf movement in Portugal in his previous life as an architect), he immediately began converting the estate after he arrived, and the ecosystem is now thriving, with wild horses, sheep, and bees (the vineyard manager, Alberto Araújo, tends to the beehives). Grapes are harvested by hand, and crushed by foot. The amphorae are lined with beeswax, and a small amount of olive oil is used as a cap to prevent any voile from forming. There is no temperature control during fermentation or ageing, and wines are bottled by hand.
