Throughout the harvest, maturation rates were closely and meticulously monitored so that each parcel and each grape variety was picked separately in due regard to its location and individual characteristics. In 2017, Aragonez was harvested on 21 August, earlier than usual. Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional only reached the winery on 11 September, while the Alicante Bouschet arrived from Perdigoes on 14 September and from Lavradores on 29 September.

Hand-picked into small crates by variety, with bunch sorting., fermentation in open Lagares with submerged cap and temperature control (22C – 25C), basket pressing, and malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged for 18 months in new oak barrels, followed by 3 years of bottle aging before market release.
