Monte Seis Reis first harvest was in 2003 and since then has achieved several recognitions.
It is a privileged place for wine lovers to discover the real essence of wine and all the magic surrounding the craft of wine making. It is a place where there has been an investment in the quality of the wines as well as in wine tourism – bringing the wine drinker closer to the vineyard. At our winery, we also organize several exhibitions throughout the year, where we share some of the art, history and culture of the region.
The name of our winery and the name of our wines were created after in-depth research into the history of Estremoz, a city founded in the XIII century, with very close ties to five Portuguese kings and one queen. We wanted to connect wine and history, bringing our visitors closer to the wine through contact with the history, art and culture of the region.
Monte Seis Reis is located in Estremoz, 170 km south east from Lisbon, district of Évora. The estate has 200 hectares and the vineyard is planted over 50 hectares in the Estremoz region. The soil, also called Terroir is mud-argillaceous derived from schist soils – which is ideal for vines. At Monte Seis Reis, we produce traditional grapes of the region, but we also follow trends of other wine regions with many international grapes. Our wines are the result of this fusion that includes the nature, our region and what we observe all over the world.
The winery is prepared to receive visitors, with an attractive visitor centre including wineshop, tasting room, art gallery with different exhibitions, Six Kings Room with the history behind the estate’s name and a small exhibition circuit with several information about the wine and the wine making process.
At our estate, we also plant Plums typical from this region, a few acres of olive trees to produce olive oil, cork oak to extract cork and produce black pigs, horses, ponies and sheeps.
The winery is open to visitors from Monday to Saturday.
You can visit the winery and reception centre free of charge, but wine tastings cost between €6, 50 and €16.
For groups, it is possible to arrange meals on request.
