Yes, but only entry-level wines. We are looking to find a company to represent and sell our high-quality wines.

Our winery is considered to have unique soil and many sunshine, that´s why our Grande Reserva have 16,5% alcohol.

We started to export in 1982, in the beginning to France to the Portuguese people that have emigrated in the past. Our development for the next years is to finish our project of the Enotourism, which have started a few years, where we have a big saloon for wine tastings and lunch or dinner, but we want to extend the rooms we have, due to demand we have been receiving.
