The winery combines both old and new elements. Whilst it maintains its original wooden roof structure and lagares (low stone tanks), it has recently been optimised by the introduction of temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Indeed, the winery allies modern technology with traditional techniques and equipments, such as hand-operated presses. Other parts of the winery have been given new uses. This is the case of the concrete tanks, which now host the estate´s lab.
Red wines are fermented in lagares at a controlled-temperature of 25ºC – 29ºC, and matured in Portuguese and French oak vats. White wines are fermented in stainless steel vats at low temperatures (15ºC). Following quality control, the wines are selected and accordingly bottled as Cortiçadas, Monte das Cortiçadas, Porta D'Aviz (a PGI wine), Dyonisius (a PDO wine), Colinas d'Évora DOC and Herdade das Cortiçadas Family Reserve.
The grape varieties planted are Aragonez, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet for red wines, and Roupeiro, Arinto and Fernão Pires for whites.
