“I like to say. I'll say it better: I like to talk. Words are touching bodies for me, visible mermaids, sensualities embodied. Perhaps because real sensuality is of no interest to me at all - not even mentally or dreamily - my desire has been transformed into that which creates verbal rhythms in me, or listens to others. I shudder if they say well. Such a page from Fialho, such a page from Chateaubriand, make my whole life tingle in all veins, make me quiver tremulously still from an unattainable pleasure that I am having. Such a page, even, by Vieira, in its cold perfection of syntactic engineering, makes me tremble like a branch in the wind, in a passive delusion of moved thing. I don't cry for anything that life brings or takes. However, there are prose pages that have made me cry. ” Bernardo Soares (Fernando Pessoa's semi heteronym) TECHNICAL INFORMATION Climate: Continental Soil: Schist Production: 15,000 Grape Varieties: Touriga-Nacional, Touriga-Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz - Vinhas Velhas Vinification: Stalking, fermentation in a traditional wine press, with controlled temperature between 24 and 26ºC.
