Bastardo is a variety that is easily found in the old vineyards of the Douro. Also known as Trousseau in the French region of Jura, it is a short-cycle variety, with premature ripening, normally used to increase the sugar content of musts, from grapes from cooler areas. The idea when producing this Bastard was to try to tame the rustic character of the variety and look for its more elegant and fresh side. The Bastardo vines are found scattered around the old vineyards of Quinta de Napoli, where all the viticulture is organic.
