Azores Wine Co. 'a Proibida' Tinto, Portugal 2017

Before phylloxera hit in the late 19th century, the Azores were one of the most prolific growing areas in Europe, with the volume of production in the millions of liters. Following phylloxera, that production level was decimated to less than 25000 liters. As a stopgap, Isabella was planted. Since it is a hybrid of Vitis Vinifera and Vitis Labrusca (related to the “fox grapes” of the American South), it is resistant to phylloxera, and became a mainstay for rustic “house wine” production on the island. Antonio has rescued an old plot of this unique varietal for a passion project, to show that this grape is capable of making spectacular wine.  A lighter style red, full of red fruit and salinity.
