     The winemaking process is a Roman ancestral winemaking system, where clay carving serves a dual purpose, the production and storage of wine. That is, the wine is made and stored in the same container. The essence of carving vinification has changed little in over two thousand years. Generally speaking, the grapes are placed inside the carvings and fermentation occurs spontaneously.

 

     It is said that somewhere in Georgia (Caucasus), here about 9,000 years ago, someone forgot a crock of crushed grapes in there, went to see, tasted, liked it was wine.

 

     In Portugal, the main wine producing region is the Alentejo, being Vila de Frades considered the "capital" of the wine.

     Carving wine is regulated by CVRA as PDO Alentejo wine, and the standards require and supervision proves on the spot that carving wine, to be considered as such, can only be separated from the masses on 11 November, or later. We LCAs generally only separated the liquid masses at the end of December.

 

     Promoted by the Municipality of Vidigueira and with the involvement of 27 institutions, including municipalities of the Alentejo and other entities, is currently preparing the application of the production of the wine of intangible heritage to UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. Within the scope of the application and as the objective of promoting and valuing this product the Interpretive Center of Talha Wine of Vila de Frades will open soon.
