We call this the hippopotamus wine (and the wine is as good as the story behind that).

We call this the hippopotamus wine. Winemaker ́Alvaro Castro spends so much time tending his vines that he has neglected his swimming pool, which is now covered in a thick layer of algae. Things have gotten so bad that he jokes about getting a hippo. This intriguing wine is a little like a hippo: bigger bodied and more nippy than you might expect, with a lot going on beneath the surface.

Álvaro Castro and his daughter Maria are widely acknowledged as being the leading producers in Portugal's Dão region, known as the Burgundy of Portugal because of the elegance of its wines. Álvaro was a civil engineer who inherited the family property in 1980. The farm has been in existence since the 16th Century, but only started making its own wines under Álvaro, prior to this its grapes were sold for blending.
