- A partnership between grape grower/winemaker, Antonio Sousa and impresarial wine importer, Savio Soares, Bojo do Luar's Tez takes Sousa's biodynamically farmed indigenous varieties and Savio's imagination, adds ground chestnut flowers to the grapes during fermentation (no need for added SO2) and leaves the skins on for 3 months. The label is a portrait taken from a photo of teenage Savio.
