Tiago Sampaio farms in the Douro Valley however he's doing everything a little bit differently. Rather than farming on the river he is growing old and new vines at high altitude and this helps slow down the ripening process. Another differing factor is the soil type, his grapes are growing in a shist/ clay/ granite mix which is a little unusual from the normal shist/ slate soul elsewhere.

The 80 year grapes are mixed with newer ones before being little destemmed and aged for 4 months on the skins in cement tanks.
