Ginja de Obidos Oppidum



Challenge, inspiration and passion were the great motivators of Dário Pimpão in producing a natural Ginja without colourings or additives, made from high quality ingredients. The great secret of Oppidum lies in the fact that it uses only the best fruit to obtain a pure liqueur, aromatic and with a balanced alcoholic gradation, that when savoured offers a smooth and full-bodied flavour. It all starts with the selection of the fruit picked from the morello trees (ginjeiras) in orchards (ginjais) of producers who, for decades, have been suppliers of the morello cherry (ginjas).It has been proven that the less cultivated the morello trees, the more astringent is the fruit and the better the final product. Each peduncle is carefully removed and, once in our premises, the fruit goes into a hydro-alcoholic infusion where it remains some months until it reaches the desired stage, in what is a long process that requires a lot of patience and knowledge, evolving with the passage of time. By its very nature, aging is long term and any attempt to accelerate the process can be disastrous to the final result.
