Winemaking:
Quinta do Crasto Reserva Vinhas Velhas is a red wine resulting from grapes of one section from the vineyards of Quinta do Crasto with 70-year-old.  The grapes after the harvest were rigorously inspected on a sorting table on the arrival to the cellar. The grapes were then completely destemmed and slightly crushed. After this, the must were transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel vats where fermentation took place. It was aged 16 months in French oak barrels (85%) and American oak barrels (15%). The wine has been bottled without filtration, it can come to create deposit during its aging in bottle.

Grape Varieties:
