HOW DO WE PRODUCE

malamado?

Malamado is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation process at a point which produces a sweet, and high-alcohol wine.

A fortified wine is obtained once fermentation is stopped and grape alcohol is added, a process known as “fortification.” According to winemaker’s choice, these wines will be very sweet if fortified soon after fermentation has begun, but less sweet if fortified at the end of it. Either case, the result is a wine with high alcohol content.

This type of fortification dates back to the XVI and XVII centuries when it was used to preserve wine so that it remained fresh during long journeys from European producers to customers.
