Phaunus wine is developed in Quinta do Casal do Paço, Arco de Valdavez, Portugal.
This dark, shallow cavern beneath the house, and operations are non-electric, entirely manual. Red grapes are foot-tread in a traditional Portuguese granite lagare. Pumps are worked by hand, very old-fangled and in wines are aged in amphora. 
The wine label tries to communicate the old fashioned medieval way of the wine is produced with a little funny touch. The result is a collage illustration of a big machine inspired in Leonardo Da Vinci inventions controlled by the character which gives the name to the wine: Phaunus or Phaunos.
