Overview

We are a boutique winery making organic wines set in wonderful countryside just out of Caldas da Rainha. We do winetastings with tapas, and wine sales direct from our cellar or we ship to you anywhere in Europe. Our wine tastings are famous for good food, good wine and fun! Our wines are made without aging in oak barrels so one can taste the flavour of the grape and our Terroir. We also offer summer accomodation in our apartment, which is registered with the Portuguese Tourist board under 11178/AL
