Lusus (Portuguese) Wines Interview (Episode 201)

We have the great pleasure of interviewing Alexis and Claire a husband and wife team who have just set up their new venture Lusus Wines.

Luses Wines only sells Portuguese Wine from vineyards hand-picked (s to speak) by Alexis and Claire.

Many of the wines they offer are from small artisan vineyards where an inordinate amount of care and pride goes into producing some of the best wine to come out of Portugal.

 

Included in the Lusus catalogue is wine from Quinta da Casaboa who we interviewed in Episode 174 (https://youtu.be/vjcyLunyDws) and 196 (https://youtu.be/5yHJ1regwkw)

We discuss what prompted Alexis and Claire to start this new venture, how they selected the wines they are now selling as well as many other subjects.

Ervideira Vineyard – Interview (Episode 196 Part 3)

In this part of the episode, we visit the Ervideira vineyard and talk to one of the owners who is the vineyard’s winemaker.

He begins by explaining the history of his family’s vineyard – he is one of the fourth generation now running the vineyard.

They have a fantastic range of 25 wines which are all top-flight – they focus on quality rather than volume.

They also have quirky wines such as the 30,000 bottles wines that are stored underwater at a depth of around 30m in Portugal’s and Europes largest lake which, when you compare to exactly the same wine stored above water, taste significantly different.

Casa da Carvalha VineYard (Episode 196 Part 2)

In this episode, I get the honour of interviewing Pedro Santos from the Casa de Carvalha vineyard in the Portuguese wine region of Doa.

The interview takes place in the Order dos Engenheiros, roughly translated into the Chartered Institute of Engineering’s restaurant where we get to taste Pedro’s family’s wine as well enjoying a fantastic lunch.

Pedro talks about his own comparatively small vineyard (3 Hectacres) as well the Portuguese wine industry, in general, both past and present.

It is a fascination conversation where Pedro really gives us an insight into the Portuguese wine market.

Tasting a Great Red Portuguese wine (Episode 97)

In this episode, having read in the wine magazine ‘Decanter’ that Portugal is the place to be to discover some of the most exciting new wines to be brought to market, we decided to taste a sample from a vineyard in the Tejo wine region just to the North West of Portugal’s capital city – Lisbon.

The wine we tasted was Lobo e Falcao (Wolf and Falcon) The wolf part of the name comes from the Vineyard owners nickname and the Falcon part of the name comes from where the wine is produced in what used to be Portuguese Royalty’s Falconry.

What a great wine!
