In the heart of the Alentejo, our producer has created a magical space where vines grow closely watched by the most experienced eyes and cared for by the most delicate hands. The grapes are distinguished by the unique flavor and texture. Crunchy and sweet are absolutely irresistible. The grapes are protected throughout the year, using the most advanced production techniques so that in the summer they grow beautiful and sweet, making the delights of those who taste them.
The natural conditions
The immensity of flat horizons allied to the geographical location offer the Alentejo Mediterranean and continental characteristics favorable to the production of grapes. Over 3000 annual hours of sunshine and warm weather, with temperatures above 35 ° C in the height of summer, are reflected in the maturation of grapes with an accumulation of sugars that makes them particularly sweet and with a strong and mature color.
Our producer is currently the largest national producer of table grapes with a production area of about 250 hectares and 13 grape varieties of high quality and recognized. The methods of production are based on the pergola system consisting of tall vineyards, covered by networks and plastics that promote a micro environment favorable to the development of the grape.
Our producer currently has in production 13 varieties of grapes of high and recognized quality, being 6 with grainha and 7 without grainha. Continually thinking about the future, we also contemplate a vast experimental field where some of the world's most renowned grape varieties are being tested and, when their viability is guaranteed, they become options to be considered for cultivation in extension and commercialization.
