This 900-hectare estate called Herdade do Mouchão was bought at the end of the 19th century by John Reynolds to supply the cork business started by his grandfather.

The family then planted several plots of vines and in 1901 built a traditional winery, with thick mud-bricks, whitewashed walls and roofed in Portuguese tiles. John Reynolds is thought to have imported the first Alicante Bouschet vines from France. Mouchão is now famous for this red-fleshed variety.

The vineyards cover 38 hectares and plantings are divided into different plots, the oldest of which being that of the Alicante Bouschet.

Visits are by appointment only, dependent upon the availability of the owners.
