Golden Grape Farm has been the scene of battles during the French invasions and has three decades of history of wine production.
The winery has been designed to work the old-fashioned wines with the latest technology. The best grapes ferment in traditional granite wineries. Through the process of maceration and reassembly, with the traditional step on foot, it is possible to extract the compounds of the grape that most interest winemakers.
Aware of the responsibility and the environmental impact of the farm, the grapes are organic, without the use of chemicals. Vineyards, orchards, olive groves, and hives fit into a biological production mode, resulting in wine, olive oil, and honey with intense and exquisite flavours.
Here the tradition of old-fashioned wine is kept alive. With the technique that the Romans brought over 2.000 years ago, we produce wine from amphora, better known in the Alentejo region as wine to the carving.
The main varieties are Castelão, Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tinta Roriz, Alicante Bouschet, and Syrah.
Tradition says that the end of the harvest should be celebrated with Adiafa — the banquet of the workers — and the Caramelas Ball — where boys used to date girls who arrived at Ribatejo and ended up marrying and staying at these stops.
You finish this day with a wealth of knowledge about production techniques, history, and the freshness, intensity, and variety that quality wine can offer.
