“Ever since I was a child, I went to work with my parents in the fields. Not because I wanted to or because I liked it, but out of necessity. Much of my childhood was spent on the land, helping my parents, while my friends played, went out with friends and won over some of the local girls…”
“The process was repeated every year … Throwing away the wine that had not been consumed (at the time, we only produced wine for home consumption), preparing the barrels wine press and vats, picking the grapes, which to me seemed to be an endless task, crushing the grapes by hand and filling the vats…
How I hated it!”
“Now I’ve grown up and my father is no longer with us. I feel powerfully attracted to the land and miss the old traditions of times gone by. As a young man, I never thought I would feel this attraction, but it turns out it’s the best way to escape from technology and the routines of modern life.”
“And so, the SILVAMATHIAS Wines project was born. It is dedicated to all the struggles my parents had raising and educating three children. In each bottle is a piece of gratitude. Never fail to thank those who you still can. “
“Our wines are from the Dão Region in Portugal, which we proudly represent.”
SILVAMATHIAS Wines is also the result of a fusion between the passion for wine and the sensations that a good wine can convey. We love communicating, creating bonds between people and sharing moments that will remain for posterity.
