Situated in the upper Alentejo Portalagre district, km 206.5 on the IP2 between Veiros e Monforte, the 600 hectare estate lies in a belt of gently ondulating granite countryside mostly given over to native forests of Mediterranean cork and holm oak and rasing of Alentejo purebreed cattle.
The estate is bosdered by two rivers, the Almuro and the Leca, which besides being a vital natural resource add to the beauty of the land. Registered as a private hunting reserve, the estate is a protected sanctuary for animal life. Besides the most common species of hare, partridge, duck and rabbit there are other rarer species such as bustard, deer, and wild boar.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Alicante Boushet and Aragonez, a magnificent selection of the best varieties from Iberia and France are planted in distinct blocks in accordance with variations in the slope and soils quality to allow for precise management of under-vine drip irrigation.
The coarseness of the soils, the scarcity of water and the range of temperature between day and night all reduce the yield per hectare; but nature gives in compensation and increase the quality of the fruit, with intense aromas and tastes so fundamental to the production of good wine.
