The image for this wine was created by the sea. The label for this wine was created by the sea.
It was designed over the course of 10 months when the bottles were immersed in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, on the Alentejo coast in Portugal.
During this time, by ageing in these temperature and humidity conditions, the wine produced by Monte da Carochinha developed in an interesting and unique way. And its image accompanied this development, creating amazing and deeply beautiful motifs.
All we did was seal the image with the producer’s brand and enable each bottle to display a unique artistic design.
Vinho do Mar” is a mysterious and dazzling work of nature, a wine that has come to symbolise the identity of Monte da Carochinha and the southwest coast of the Alentejo.
Originating between the mountainous Sierra and the sea, the wine is the result of a careful selection of grape varieties and unique winemaking practices, from a terroir with a strong Atlantic influence.
After bottling, a certain quantity is aged underwater in the bay of Sines in an environment with singular characteristics. The depth, pressure and biochemical characteristics of the sea accentuate the wine’s qualities, giving it a more complex, harmonious and mature personality. The red is noted for the softness of its tannins, and the white for the harmony of its fruits.
During the ageing process, the sea’s biodiversity traces intricate motifs on the bottles, turning them into profoundly beautiful works of art.
