LAGARES

"The Romans' art of winemaking included cuting large vats of stone for the picked grapes.This practice was also seen in the Douro valley where there was plenty of granite and clay schist available, and later, when the wine growers appeared in the Douro Valley, they took over the Roman vessels which they named lagares.Soon they had to build their own lagares wich were cut into  rectangular shapes so that it would be easier to crush the grapes by foot.For the same reasons they could not be too deep, usually 70-80 cm, sometimes a bit more,and with a capacity of 7.000-8000 litres.The modern lagares are made of stainless steel and which are very easy to clean and much easier to regulate the temperature." At CASA DE SANTO ANTONIO DE BRITIANDE, if you can't see this lagares, you can taste good white,sparkling and red wines from Távora-Varosa and Douro Valley. Come and see !
