Rui Reguinga not only makes Pedra Basta with Richard Mayson at Quinta do Centro, he also produces Terrenus, which bears his own signature.
The old vineyards, unique in their kind, are planted with no less than 15 different grape varieties. This makes harvesting difficult and ensures that the composition varies slightly each year according to the maturity of the different varieties. With the name "Terrenus", Rui clearly claims a "terroir" and anyone who tastes this wine of character will notice that there is nothing exaggerated about it.
The best white wines are extremely rare in Alentejo due to the excessive heat in summer. Terrenus is the only exception thanks to the old vines at high altitude, between 500 and 750m. Rui Reguinga makes a rigorous selection and only produces about 3000 bottles a year.
This reserve cuvée comes only from the oldest vines of the Terrenus plots. This gives a Terrenus full of flavour with remarkable depth.
