Alves de Sousa Winery
An icon for Douro/Porto wines
This black winery conceals, like a bottle, the treasures that are the Alves de Sousa wines. The grape delivery area, overlooking the vineyard landscape below, intentionally makes the connection between the territory – the Douro – and the beginning of the winemaking process. The same level also contains, practically merged, the areas with the wine presses, vats, laboratory and bottling area, re ecting the logic that each element complements the other with great precision. The casks perform their prolonged task in the tempered shade of the underground level. The schist flooring in the shop and tasting room also reflects the brand marketing.
