Wine from the Portuguese Azores means an Atlantic Ocean injection. In the Azores, a group of islands in the Atlantic Ocean about 1,400 kilometers west of Lisbon, wine has been made since the sixteenth century. But so little that you almost never see the wines from the Azores on the European mainland. They make around 20,000 liters per year, which is about the annual harvest in the Azores. It's all white and a lot of it is fortified with alcohol. The wine is made from typical Portuguese grapes, such as Verdelho and Arinto. What is also unknown, but certainly not unloved by the wine connoisseur, is quality because the Azores have a great climate for wine. The sea breeze ensures healthy grape vines that do not require chemical intervention. Moisture, sun and a big difference in temperature make the wines of the Azores incredibly beautiful. Without a doubt the most famous and renowned winery of the Azores is Azores Wine Company. They have perhaps one of the most unique terroirs in the world, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, and at the foot of the volcanic mountain Pico.

The Volcanic Series are wines expressing the rugged volcanic terroir of the Azores. The Branco Vulcânico from this series consists of 85% Arinto dos Açores and 15% Verdelho. When the grapes are ripe, they are harvested manually and brought to the press in baskets with a capacity of 40 kg, where the entire bunches are pressed. The fermentation takes place in small stainless steel tanks of 600 to 1000L.

In the nose, the Branco Vulcânico is fresh, mineral and displays aromas of tropical fruits. In the mouth a very present minerality and a lively acidity, Pineapple, Passion fruit and the clear influence of the Atlantic Ocean. Very tasty in combination with Seafood, Salads and different types of grilled sea fish. Delicious wine that can age fantastically.
