Area: Montexunto, Portugal
COZs is a partnership between two of the most brilliant vignerons/winemakers from Portugal, Tiago Teles (Gilda, RAIZ) and Antonio Marques-da Cruz (Quinta da Serradinha). The idea of working together started in 2015, the desire was to "revive the old vineyards at Cozinheiros…” This vineyard, located just 5 miles from the Atlantic ocean proved ideal for the wines of Teles and Marques-da-Cruz. Its 50-year-old vines of Baga and slightly younger vines of Vital are co-planted on clay-limestone soils and farmed organically. The proximity to the coast keeps the heat at bay and the grapes find a great balance between ripeness and minerality.
