Luisa Amorim discovered the Alentejo at an early age - where the greens and browns of the cork oak trees mixed with the holm oaks and olive trees, in an immense and seemingly infinite territory, as she stayed in the region before heading south for her summer holidays in the Algarve.

In addition to cork, which plays a central role in her family universe, Luisa soon discovered that wine is one of her great passions. She later began to manage the Quinta Nova of Nossa Senhora do Carmo estate in the Douro and the Taboadella estate in the Dão region.

Her family originally acquired the Herdade Aldeia de Cima estate in 1994. In 2017 she decided to rebuild the small village and plant a vineyard in the Serra do Mendro, which soon became a life project.

With its unique biodiversity, the implantation of 20 ha of vineyards in the Herdade da Aldeia de Cima, projected until 2020, accompanies the different level curves of the slopes and valleys, and occupies two distinct terroirs: one on the plateau, 289 to 300 metres above sea level, and another in the Serra do Mendro, 300 to 380 metres above sea level, in an unusual orography that makes it possible to create 24 micro-terroirs.

The wines are designed in the vineyard - where we look for ancient wisdom, diversity, minerality of the soils and the silky textures that history has recounted and revealed to us!
