Welcome to the latest in our new series of audio interviews, where we hand the producer the microphone and allow them to tell us all about their winery and individual wines.
This time, it’s Pedro Ribeiro, winemaker and owner at Espaço Rural in Portugal.
Pedro and his wife Catarina Vieira, both winemakers from other Portuguese regions decided to come to Vidigueira, in Alentejo, to produce wines that are true to the historical traditions of this region. They ferment their wines in impermeable clay pots called Talha, where both wine and skin remain in contact for a longer period. The resulting wines are mineral, fresh, elegant and above all, authentic. They recently caught the attention of renowned wine critic Jancis Robinson and Dr Jamie Goode
