ANETO

History
Sobredos is a family enterprise created in 2001 with the purpose of producing, bottling and commercializing small volumes of high quality wines. ANETO is the wines brand.

In order to achieve our goals we acquired 7ha of adult vines in Sobradais and Malvêdos, Castedo do Douro parish, the Douro Valley\'s heart in Alijó district. Different varieties are separated from each other.

The first harvest to be bottled was Aneto red 2002.
Three years later we introduced a sweet white wine - Aneto Colheita Tardia (Late Harvest).
The first Aneto red Grande Reserva was vinified in 2006.
The first Aneto white followed in 2007, with the first Aneto white Reserva appearing in 2008.
Finally, in 2010 small quantities of Aneto Pinot Noir were trialled, with increased volume in the following year.

VINES

The white grapes come from Barrôa nd Penajóia, a transition zone with granitic soils and a cooler Atlantic climate. The grape varieties are Semillon, Gouveio, Viosinho, Arinto, Alvarinho, Verdelho, Folgasão, Encruzado and Cerceal.

The red grapes come from Sobradais and Malvêdos, Castedo do Douro, in Alijó district, where we own 7ha of adult vines planted in schistous soils with clay outcrops and Mediterranean climate. The grape varieties are TTouriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão and Souzão.

WINERY

The winery is located in Quinta de Estremadouro, Penajoia, Resende. It is a simple and functional building with three work levels: reception, fermentation and barrel storage. Welcomes visitors with advance booking.

The manual harvest of the white grapes is made by variety, using 15kg boxes. Grapes then pass through a selection conveyor table. They are crushed and ferment in stainless steel containers and oak barrels with controled temperature.

The manual harvest of the red grapes is planned and executed with separation of varieties. They are cut at the ideal point of maturation. Then in the same day the grapes go through the selection table, the stalk remover with light crushing and the mass extracted falls down in traditional granitic lagares. Here they are foot treaded twice a day, macerate and ferment for some days.

The future finished product is first stored in stainless still tanks for the malolactic fermentation before further storage in new and used french oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months.
