About us

Company details

The Castelo Branco family have made an effort to change their traditional cereal based agricultural activity to a more competitive agricultural activity such as vineyards and olive groves.
Planting began in 1995, after choosing areas with the right soil, exposure to the sun and vine variety. Our 200 hectares of vineyards, south-facing and set on sand-rich schist loam, are divided into gently-sloping areas. We used red wine grape varieties such as Aragonez, Trincadeira, Castelão, Touriga Nacional, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicante Bouschet.
Our white varieties are Antão Vaz, Arinto, Verdelho and Viogner. The whole area is drip-watered, enabling perfect balance in the maturing of the grapes during the long, hot, dry summers.
Harvesting is done at night so that the grapes are harvested in the best conditions, at considerably lower temperatures than in the daytime, where they can reach 35º to 40º C. The harvest is almost exclusively mechanical, allowing the grapes to be quickly harvested at the optimum point indicated by maturation control analysis.
Our modern winery, with a capacity for 1.410.000 litres, combines traditional methods with advanced technology, enhancing perfect winemaking which brings out the excellent quality of our grapes. It was built in 2002, and is perfectly integrated into the architecture of Monte Paço do Conde, headquarters of the Herdade.
