Hand harvested. Part of the grapes are crushed and destemmed before fermentation takes place in a cement vat with indigenous yeasts. After being aged in old oak casks and barrel for 21 months, the wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Joao Afonso has been blessed with two amazing and fascinating careers and now his evolution from a leading ballet dancer to a top Portuguese natural garage wine producer is complete! In 1994 after a small experience with the then young Dirk Niepoort he began his love affair with wine with minimal intervention and optimum quality. He is a wine maker that has an obsession with wines from old vineyards, cared for with organic and sustainable awareness to achieve wines that can be classed as natural. “A wine is a natural product, we cannot pour anything into the wine that isn’t necessary”. This simple phrase of Rui Alves, known as the godfather of the Portuguese natural wine movement, ended up constituting the whole oenological orientation of Joao Afonso. The Cabecas do Reguengo wine dream started exclusively from centuries-old vineyards, in organic production mode to which he added biodynamic practices that have been his mantra since the beginning of the new century!
