Vila Santa is produced in the Alentejo region, located in the south of Portugal. Its name originates from the title given in the 15th century to the members of the ancient Priest Congregation of St. John Evangelist, known simply as Loios. Loios monks have always had a deep connection to the history of Alentejo, especially to its wines. Thus, this wine has been named after them and is made from traditional grape varieties of the region. The Loios Red is a blend of traditional red varieties from this region; such as Aragonês, Trincadeira, and Castelão. After a careful selection and pressing, the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks, perfectly preserving the unique, fresh fruit character of each variety.

Grapes are crushed and de-stemmed, followed by maceration for 24 hours in rotative tanks. Temperature-controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.
