Alfrocheiro Preto

This grape also bears the name “bastardo,” probably because its descent and parents are unknown. Its cradle, however, is suspected to be in Portugal. It certainly found its home there, with its first documentary mention in 1791.

The black grapes take time to ripen and are highly susceptible to Botrytis cinerea and powdery mildew. But if the vine is carefully and lovingly maintained, the berries yield accessible, velvety wines. Because of its intense color, the wine is often used as a cuvée partner. Despite the body and intensity of the grapes, varietal wines pressed from Alfrocheiro Preto are best drank rather quickly.
