Our people and our vineyard
Carrying the land to deserve what it offers the best, is the basis of our team’s ongoing and continuous work.
Careful works throughout the year, and treatments carried out under an integrated protection regime, guarantee grapes of the best quality.
The grapes and the winery
We have strengthened our commitment to viticulture by selecting different varieties so that, from year to year, we obtain better wines, thus satisfying the various national and international markets.
The cellar receives the best of the vineyard. We give priority and attention to the minimal intervention and careful handling to maximize the potential of the grapes.
Porão Velho Rose Wine and Penafirme slightly sparkling wine first batch production
Launch of the Vintage Porão Velho Rose Wine and Penafirme slightly sparkling wine, for young people who seem to favor “simple, fresh and socializing” wines, more direct and with less wood.
West and north of the city of Lisbon, the Lisboa wine region was until recently known as Estremadura. A lot of wine is made here, much of it in co-operatives, in a very wide variety of styles and qualities. This region where the “vinho regional” Lisboa is predominant also has nine DOC.
A number of the top wine estates of Lisboa are in or around the DOC region of Alenquer, tucked in to the east of the Serra de Montejunto, and therefore a little warmer, a little less windy and wet. Grapes can ripen well, and red wines especially can be top class.
For the Lisboa region as a whole, the main traditional white varieties are Arinto, Fernão Pires, Malvasia, Seara-Nova and Vital, and for reds Alicante Bouschet, Aragonez, Castelão, Tinta Miúda, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira, but many other national and foreign grapes are now used for VR wines and certain DOC wines.
