"Uivo , a howl back to nature!"


Tiago Sampaio is an innovative young winemaker of Folias De Baco. In 2007 the project was started but it was from any childhood that Tiago caught the bug of winemaking when he followed his grandfather through the farms and vineyards. A curious and plucky younger - He was fascinated. This lead him to many more ventures in his wine journey ultimately completing an agricultural engineering course that opened the doorway for his Ph.D. studies in Oregon for Viticulture and Enology. 


The Curtido has naturally farmed Moscatel Galego Branco Grapes with minimal intervention in the cellar, 4 months of skin contact in cement tanks. It's dry with great tannins and notes of grapefruit and orange peel, with a hint of peach. Slight funk for our funk lovers.
