About the producer: Adega de Penalva is one of the leading cooperatives in the Portuguese Dão region in the centre of northern Portugal close to the Douro. The coop was formed in the ’60s and has around a thousand members – that’s a lot of coordination – but with an average of only around 1.2 hectares of vines per member the volume crushed is manageable.
