Historical Notes

The Lobo de Vasconcellos family has been involved in the grape and wine industry for two hundred years, producing and selling wines across Portugal. Their history in the Ribatejo region stretches back to 1775. That was where they built the first vapour-powered winery in the country. This accumulated expertise was then put to use in the most famous region for the production of top quality wines – the Alentejo.


The estate and the winery are located between the must visit town of Évora (Unesco World Heritage Site) and Reguengos de Monsaraz, in the parish of Vendinha – São Vicente do Pigeiro. This location offers conditions of climate and soil for grape growing and wine production that are unequalled in the Alentejo.

The Vineyards

The vineyards benefit from the best possible climate, soil and sun exposure. The well aerated, clay loam soils with granite outcroppings are perfectly apt for grape growing. The Mediterranean climate yields wines that are aromatic, well-structured, complex and well-suited for bottle ageing. The 15 year old vineyards spread over 40 hectares, and comprise a combination of typical Portuguese grapes – Touriga Nacional, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira, Periquita and Tinta Caiada, for reds and Verdelho for whites – with some of the most famous international varieties – Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.

The Winery

The winery is equipped with the most up-to-date technology including a remote temperature monitoring system.
