PLURAL WINES, EVEN IN THE COLOR
Each Cálem wine, with its own aromas and colour, is a surprise that will arouse your senses.
VINIFICATION AND AGEING
Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (between 16-18°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. Made by blending wines of different harvests, with different levels of maturation in stainless steel and wood for a minimum of 3 years, the result is a rich and aromatic wine, with the perfect level of sweetness.

Its freshness and lightness make this wine a perfect choice to accompany a dried fig salad with prosciutto, or a delicious grilled sole with an almond crust. A versatile wine, it goes brilliantly with any dessert, especially the ones made with tropical fruit, such as mango and papaya carpaccio.
The rows of vines are traditionally planted across the slope in horizontal terraces. More recently vines have been planted up the slope (called “vinha ao alto”, meaning vertically planted).
