ELA is a style of light and fresh, fizzy wines with lots of personality, best enjoyed well chilled and while still young.
These wines come from the Vinho Verde area located in the Minho province of Portugal. This is the northwest corner of the Iberian Peninsula that experiences cold, wet Winter days and dry heat from sunny days in the Summer. Atlantic ocean influence is prevalent in this region with maritime winds running up river valleys towards Spain. Low depth sandy soils sitting on granite beds offer the wines from this cool climate growing region their natural high acidity.
Ela symbolizes what the land means to winemaker Claudia Rodrigues.
