DOC Colheita Burmester and DOC Tavedo mark the launch of Casa Burmester’s new image. The main challenge was to combine a long history that goes back to 1750 with the modern concepts of elegance and sophistication that are the characteristics of Casa Burmester. Its new image reflects this history and character, with graphic lines and colours chosen to reinforce the brand’s values.
Under the seal of Casa Burmester, the brand Tavedo is released on to the market for a more immediate and relaxed occasion.
‘Respect Douro Superior Cima Corgo terroirs and pass on to the wines the character of the traditional grape varieties of the region’ were the objectives of Ricardo Macedo, the winemaker of DOC wines at Sogevinus Fine Wines. ‘Our aim is to have minimal intervention in these wines, in which we have preserved the pureness of the fruit and the primeness of the schistose soil’.
