40 ha of vineyards (mostly white varities) 3km from the ocean at the Alentejan Atlantic Coast

In 2008, two decades after pioneering with planting reds in a white wine area, we embarked on a new adventure in search of a cooler climate for our white wines.

We found the perfect place near Vila Nova de Milfontes on the Alentejo Atlantic coast, where we have planted a 40 hectare vineyard with mostly white wine varieties at Zambujeira Velha.

The maritime coastal climate, with mild summers, frequent fog, and cooling ocean breezes means a longer growing season and slower ripening, all of which is good for acidity and freshness in our white wines.
