World’s best wine region

Alentejo is the largest Portuguese region. It’s the land of golden, sun-kissed plains, sprinkled with olive groves and cork trees and, of course, vineyards and cellars that make it one of the most appreciated DOC (PDO - Protected Designation of Origin) regions in Europe and the world, as shown by its distinction as “the world’s best wine region to visit” at the USA Today “Readers’ Choice Awards”.
The House
Monte dos Perdigões: at the sight of Reguengos de Monsaraz.

Home to Damião de Góis, Portuguese humanist of the 16th century and a close friend of Erasmus of Rotterdam, and later to Luís de Freitas Branco, distinguished conductor and composer, Monte dos Perdigões is a place where freedom of ideas goes hand in hand with workmanship. It’s where today, in a unique terroir and at an exceptional cellar, all Monte dos Perdigões wines are born.
The Vineyard
It all starts in the historical vineyards of Monte dos Perdigões and in the Vale do Rico Homem Homestead.

Where the grape varieties that will be used in inspired compositions grow: Trincadeira, Aragonez, Syrah and Alicante Bouschet, among many others.
The Cellar
At the cellar of Monte dos Perdigões, art blends with the science of wine, always with the unique touch of noble materials.

Handpicked grapes ferment in French oak barrels and in Alentejo marble tanks, famous for their high thermal inertia. With their short and wide geometry — and the help of mechanical pressure and crushing equipment — they increase the extraction of tannins while allowing a notable aromatic expression. The maturation of the reds occurs sur lies in Allier French oak tuns of fine grain and medium toast. After an adequate aging stage in half-barrels, they’re carefully bottled — always using national cork — waiting for the moment they’ll be opened and enjoyed by the most demanding wine enthusiasts.
