Released in 1970, the Meia Encosta brand is a clear commitment from Borges to the Dão regions. It is a synonym for the unique characteristics of this region for the production of elegant and velvety wines. Part of the wine is aged in stainless steel vats and the remainder in French Oak casks for between 4 to 6 months.
