Aparte was born in 2018 when 3 friends with an ISA viticulture and a ecology masters degree discovered a wine barrel that was left „apart“ in a wine cellar in Palmela. The grapes are handpicked and selected in the vineyard. The winemaking process is in harmony with nature. Vinhos Aparte stand for naturally made wines with passion and they belong to a small group of portugese vegan producers.Vinhos Aparte brings a punk-rock/graffiti artist aesthetic to their winemaking, and it shows in their whimsical, fresh, fruity, and oh-so-funky wines. They may be grape-mad explorers in wine-based fun and craziness, but they are dead serious when it comes to making extraordinary wine. Each year the labeling of the wines change as they wanted to support different artist but also have the graphics matching their interpretations to the liquid creations. These are the wines that make Aparte travel around the country looking for the best varieties in their birth place, meaning: Single plot from a classic Terroir.  Minimal intervention and adjusted techniques at a winery!  It’s all about sense of place.
