Producer Note
In 2003, José Ribeiro Vieira purchased a four hectare vineyard in the foothills of Serra de
Aire of Cortes, in the Alta Estremadura, near Lisbon. Vale da Mata is the name of a
small, old vineyard in these foothills. It pays tribute to Vieira’s winemaker father, Manuel,
who claimed that Vale de Mata was the site where he succeeded in producing his
best wines. The Vale de Mata project respects the expression of its terroir, cultivating
the vines sustainably and using minimal intervention in the winery. Manuel gave this
wine its name and his granddaughter Catarina Viera has followed in his footsteps,
continuing his winemaking legacy. In 2018, Vale de Mata was awarded Best Wine
Producer by Revista de Vinhos.
Vineyard
Vale da Mata is the name of a small, old vineyard located in the foothills of Serra de
Aire, in Cortes. The parcel is just a few hectares and is situated on a steep terrain with
rocky soil. The land is extremely hard to work and is cultivated manually, with winter
pruning and green harvesting taking place by hand. Protected to the north, it has
good sunlight exposure throughout the day and is surrounded by olive trees, fig trees,
walnuts and shrubs. Vale de Mata is associated with several sustainable programmes;
they are a member of the FSC and grow all their grapes according to organic
philosophies. The vines are trained according to the Cordon Royat method and the
grapes are manually harvested at optimum maturity.
Winemaking
The wine was made following a philosophy of minimal intervention. The field blend
grapes were carefully sorted to ensure only the highest quality fruit was vinified and
then co-fermented using only indigenous yeasts. The blend was then aged in French
oak barrels for six months, imparting subtle complexity, followed by a further six months
in bottle.
Tasting Note

weight on the palate, which is beautifully balanced by pronounced acidity and leads
