This might just be THE WINE OF THE YEAR?! In the Alentejo region of southern Portugal, there is an old tradition of making wine in a tareco a.k.a. talha, which are essentially big clay amphora that regular folks have used to make wine in their garages for generations. Every year on St. Martin’s Day, people in the village of Vila Alva go around tasting the latest young wines made by their neighbors and celebrating the year’s harvest. XXVI Talhas is a group of friends who came together in an effort to both pay tribute to this old style of winemaking and preserve it for the future. With 26 talhas in their cellar, they are making enough wine to send some our way (Streetcar landed about 10% of the entire production of this wine). The Palhete do Tareco is a blend of local red and white grapes, it’s light and refreshing like a rosé, but with a nice little tannic presence that lends grip and substance. Chill it, drink it with friends and celebrate the age-old tradition of talha!
