The Chão de Lava is a blend of all the traditional varieties of the Azores, coming from both thesouthern and western side of the island. Fermented and aged “sur lies” in large horizontal placed tanks.
It is an incredibly transparent wine, with Chablis like citrus fruit yet an undeniably volcanic and smoky minerality that is totally unique. The texture is round but with excellent cut.
There is arguably no man alive who is more intimately connected with the wines of the Azores than Paulo Machado. Born and raised on Pico island, Paulo has worked with the vineyards his entire life. In 1998 he started planting his own vineyards on the southern coast in São Mateus, aswell as taking stewardship over large swaths of vineyards along the historic western coast in Criação Velha.
