Casa Agrícola HMR

Herdade do Monte da Ribeira belongs to Casa Agrícola H.M.R., until 2010 called CADE - Companhia Agrícola de Desenvolvimento, S.A.

The estate is located on the outskirts of Marmelar, about 15 km from the town of Vidigueira and the Alqueva dam, and comprises approximately 330 hectares dedicated to croplands, hunting, olive and citrus groves and grape growing.

Located on the south slope of the Serra do Mendro, a geological formation separating the Upper and Lower Alentejo, the estate presents some topographical challenges. The valleys surrounding the mountain allow for the capture of significant quantities of water, an essential condition for modern agriculture in a region as hot and dry as the Lower Alentejo. The mountain slope also serves as a shelter from the prevailing winds that blow from the north and northeast which, in turn, translates into slightly higher temperatures and a lower relative humidity than its surroundings. All these factors have a great impact on the vineyard, aiding the grapes to ripen well and in a healthy fashion.
