Lua Cheia-Saven is a Portuguese wine producer founded by winemaker Francisco Baptista and businessman Manuel Dias in 2009. Manuel passed away in 2019 and his legacy has been preserved by his daughter lara. Lua Cheia-Saven owns 5 different wineries across Northern Portugal. They also own over 40 hectares of organically farmed vineyards in Vinho Verde and Douro. They have partnered with local growers to gain access to an extra 200 organically farmed hectares in Alentejo and Dâo. Winemaking is traditional with a modernist approach. The resulting wines are emblematic to each appellation. Lua Cheia Saven is a one stop shop to discover the genuine wines of Portugal.

Douro is divided into three sub-regions, Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. Baixo Corgo, under the direct influence of the Serra do Marão, is the coolest and rainiest sub-region, the most fertile and with the highest density of vines. Cima Corgo is known as the heart of Douro, where many of the wines from the upper end of the Port wine segment are born. Douro Superior, the largest sub-region, is the hottest, driest and most extreme, but also the least rugged, marked by dryness and hellish summers.
Old Vines field blend with 15 different grape varietals from the schistous soils of Cima Corgo (Martim, Murça). Hand harvested in small boxes. Indigineous yeasts. Aged 8 months in tanks.

Fresh, zesty pear and melon fruit with a fine chalky effect on the nose, suggesting the dry rocky Douro landscape. Lovely freshness on the palate, lemon and grapefruit pith, lively and mouth-watering and that chalkiness also in the texture. Balanced and refreshing.
