DOIS TERROIRS

This blend of Aragonez, Syrah and Pinot Noir results from the fusion of two distinct terroirs. Pinot Noir, grown on the sandy soils of the cool maritime Atlantic Coast provides freshness and elegance to balance the fruit generosity of the Aragonez and Syrah grown further inland, on the clay over limestone soils surrounding the Estate. Grown sustainably in our own vineyards.

CORTES DE CIMA AMPHORA

A blend of Aragonez (Tempranillo), Syrah, Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira fermented and matured in raw clay amphorae. 12 months of maturation in amphorae allowed for the natural evaporation and subsequent concentration of the wine held within due to the porous properties of raw clay. This is a wine born from the fusion of minimal interventional ancient techniques and modern winemaking.

About us

Company details

The Cortes de Cima story is an epic brought about by a sailboat on treacherous open waters, melons, horticulture, and of course wine. It is a story of a Danish-American couple armed with anti-convention, lack of preconceptions and a pioneering spirit looking for a place to plant vines and raise a family. Red was planted in a land of whites, and vines were planted on rugged coastal pastures. Cortes de Cima Family Vineyards is today a leading light in the Portuguese wine world that speaks of place, passion and innovation.
