The Story

António Maria Gonçalves Faria was a mythical producer from Bairrada in the 1990s. Wines like Tonel 5 1990 or Reserva 1991 will always be remembered in Bairrada’s history. Dirk Niepoort (who once was the distributor of these wines) considers a huge privilege being able to work these magnificent vines. We will try, year after year, to produce timeless, deep wines with character, honouring the late António Maria Gonçalves Faria and his son João Pedro, currently responsible for the work in the vineyards.

Wine Information

2013 was a wet year, with rain during the winter and spring. As a result, the budburst occurred two weeks later than the previous year and the whole growing cycle was delayed. The summer was not as hot as usual and the nights were very cold in the last two weeks of August.

The harvest began in late August in the oldest vines. The ripening was balanced, with the grapes showing a good sugar level and a relatively high content of malic acid, resulting in a total acidity higher than the previous year. Gonçalo Faria white 2013 comes from several parcels of old and young vines. It was vinified in stainless steel vats, where it fermented for 3 weeks and ended the fermentation in 1000L used Fuders. The malolactic occurred in the same Fuders, where the wine aged for 18 months. It was bottled without filtration.
