Some sons learn how to fish from their fathers. Others learn how to play baseball. Manny Miranda learned how to make wine. As far back as he can remember, when summer turned to fall, he and his father and grandfather would be busy for days in the courtyard of the family house, crushing grapes, squeezing them in a hand press and fermenting the grapes into wine. Over the years, Manny learned from his father and grandfather, in the same way they had learned from their fathers and grandfathers before them. He learned how to blend wine, to age it, perfect it, and, of course enjoy it.Since he was a small boy growing up in Portugal, Manny dreamed of planting his own vineyard and building his own winery. It took more than 50 years, but he and Maria finally did it. Recently they both retired, Manny from his own construction company, Maria as a school principal. And now they’re doing the opposite of what many retired couples would do. They’re starting all over again. They’ve been busy perfecting those old world traditions Manny had passed down to him and they’ve created some very special wines they hope you enjoy as much as they do. Cheers! Or as they say in Portuguese – Saude!
