Sustainable Natural Wines
2000 Yr Old Wine Making With A Twist

Breaking The Rules

Unique, natural wines from the Alentejo

We are a group of family & friends, a fraternity with a passion for producing sustainable, small batch, natural wines using a wine making process that’s over 2000 years old. We’re preserving unique approach to wine that leverages nature, uses less energy and delivers authentic flavorful wines. We ‘break rules’ by fermenting single varietal grapes in their own Talha (Amphora) before creating our blends. Our best blends are barrel aged and reserved for members only. Our wine making process produces a unique signature to wines you will not find anywhere else in the world.

Small batch, hand harvested & crushed grapes.

Unique winemaking process

Using centuries old talhas / amphoras just as the Romans did, our wine is made with limited intervention, zero-industrial processing, no commercial enzymes or nutrients – not to a pre-determined recipe but blended based on taste from our single varietal fermentation process per talha. Unique to talha wines. We also produce oak barrel aged wines which adds complementary flavour notes to our wines; unique to Talha Maifa Wines.

We make small batch natural wines from hand harvested & crushed grapes. This process reduces damage to grapes and improves the quality of fermentation process with the naturally occurring malolactic bacteria present on the fruit and the indigenous wild and natural yeasts.

From traditional farming and wine making methods to our packaging choices, we are committed to our community and our planet.

Our grapes are tended to with TLC in Vidigueira, Alentejo DOC, the home of Talha wines, a UNESCO Heritage site candidate.
