Herdade do Portocarros philosophy is to craft wines of indisputable quality. Since 2003, we have been producing wines that are ranked among the finest in the country. Our 18ha vineyard benefits from a unique climate, as it is affected by the Atlantic breezes and the heat from the Alentejo plains. Its owner and winemaker, José da Mota Capitão is recovering extinct indigenous grapes as well as experimenting with the classic Portuguese varieties, producing innovative wines of outstanding character, balance and grace. Nominated in 2015 and awarded in 2016 “Portuguese Wine Producer of the Year” by the highly respected Portuguese wine magazine “Wine - Essencia do Vinho”, Herdade do Portocarro is always rated among the top wine producers in Portugal.
