The Vineyard

Tranquillity in a protected Landscape
The vines, a tangled maze of crooked branches, grow in the same soil from which the rice was born. The unusual climate and sandy soil, slightly salted by the sea, is the ideal recipe for a vineyard of almost 35 hectares (86 acres).

The vines were planted in "bacelo bravo" in 2001 and grafted the following year making 2003 the first year of production. The red grapes are Aragonez, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet and Touriga France, and the white granes are Arinto and Antão Vaz.

The care and treatments made throughout the year, within an integrated protection regime, guarantee totally healthy grapes. On the other hand, the low production controlled by pruning and thinning bunches, carried out with great precision, guarantee a product of great quality.
