- Colares is one of the most endangered wine growing areas in the world, due to encroaching seaside resorts and labor intensive practices. The local Ramisco grape is the rare vine that grows untrellised on its own rootstock, appearing as a snake in the sand. During veraison the clusters are propped up on sticks to ensure ripening. This bottling is extremely limited, and very cool.
