Abreu Vineyards Thorevilos is a wood-aged red wine made with the Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot red varieties by Abreu Vineyards in AVA Napa Valley, California (USA).
David Abreu founded his own winery, Abreu Vineyards, in 1986 with the help of prestigious winemaker Richard Forman and using Bordeaux-style agriculture. Located in the middle of St. Helena, in the Napa Valley and cultivating just 4 parcels, each of their wines are very limited productions. They are hard to come by and well thought of all around the world.
Abreu Vineyards Thorevilos is an almost 9-hectare plot with vines that were planted in 1990 at an altitude of 240 metres above sea level. The soils are composed of volcanic rock, stones, pebbles and ashes with red clay and the vine and terroir are cultivated in an environmentally friendly way.
And just like in the vineyard, work in the winery is also meticulous and focussed on reaching perfection. They choose the best grapes to make Abreu Vineyards Thorevilos, which then ferment with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then classified and the best juices are aged for 18 months in used French oak barrels.
With an annual production of no more than 500 bottles, Abreu Vineyards Thorevilos is a hedonistic wine that can only be purchased by being on the winery’s private list or from a few select online shops like Decántalo.
