Since 2015, the Valente brothers’ mission is to create exceptional natural wines, taking into consideration the ecological footprint throughout the process. They have captured their approach well in the saying: “Wine is bottled grapes”

Protótipo’s HQ is located in Aldeia de Cima about 700mtrs above sea level. The several micro-climates on the vineyard and old vines provide the conditions to make wines with unique character called Vinhos Ancestrais (Pet Nat: P1, P2 and P3) like you never tasted before.

The vines have the daily care and attention from Manuel all year round, and in August and September the magic continues as harvest initiates the process of ‘bottling grapes’.

It’s a great pleasure for Pirolito to bring you these natural and captivating wines to the Netherlands.
