Bem-vindo

Caros amigos,
O site do vinho Negreiros ( www.negreirostinto.com ) foi completamente remodelado e uma das coisas que pedi à web- designer Patrícia Rodrigues (think(out)) foi que me ensinasse a mexer naquilo. Portanto, o site - antes estático - tem agora um capítulo chamado "Ultimas", onde passarei a pôr o que antes punha neste blog, cuja tendência, portanto, é ficar desactualizado. Espero que não se zanguem - e que até gostem da mudança.
Saúde!
Mário Negreiros

Welcome

Dear friends,
The site of Negreiros wine (www.negreirostinto.com) has been completely remodeled and one of the things I asked the web-designer Patricia Rodrigues (think (out)) was to teach me how to manage it. So, the site - before static - now has a chapter called "Latest", where I will post the things I used to put on this blog, whose tendency is therefore to be outdated. I hope you do not get angry - and even like the change.
Cheers!
Mario Negreiros

Estágio em baixo d´água/ Under water ageing

Under (yes, under!) this sky, 946 bottles of Negreiros 2008 rest (in peace).

filling the tank

The first step was to protect the cork with wax (watch the video "putting wax", 2 posts below); then we uploaded the wine to the tank (video "putting wine in tank", the post below); finaly, we filled the tank with water. Watch the video here.

Singing

I swear: they started singing spontaneously. I took the camera after they started singing. And they were singing while helping to put 946 bottles of Negreiros wine in a tank which will be filled with water (to the wine be aged with the less termic variation possible).

Puting wax

Negreiros wine producer puts wax to protect the cork of some bottles wich will be dived in a tank of water. The idea is to age the wine under water to avoid big termic variations and to mantain the wine fresh even during the summer.
