Explicit Wines

13th April 2024, 4pm – 5pm

Explicit Wines came about when Jorge Rosa Santos, a surgeon, bought a weekend getaway in Alentejo with land. Three of his sons are winemakers so the rest, as they say, is history. Frederico, Vasco and Jorge junior make the wines together at the family’s estate on the slopes of the Serra d’Ossa near Estremoz, which produces full-bodied reds. The white wines come from Portalegre where Frederico, now the family’s resident winemaker, once sourced fruit for a sizeable producer. “We knew about the quality and the difference,” he says, adding it is a pity when bigger companies “have used very good fruit to enhance the quality of their wines, but are missing Portalegre’s terroir,” because “they are blending away the potential of region”.
