All wine production in Colares runs through this facility, and the bottles wearing the ARC label come by way of Francisco Figueiredo, a young local dedicated to the appellation’s terroir and native grapes. It lies northwest of Lisbon toward the Atlantic, where the vines are wild and the soils are sandy. However, Chão Rijo translates from Portuguese as “hard soil”, as the vineyards on this bottling are made of compact clay. Light, earthy, authentic, and ready to drink.
