In 1998, Comendador José Berardo became the main shareholder and continued the company’s mission by investing in the planting of new vineyards, the modernisation of wineries and the acquisition of new properties, as well as initiating a partnership with the Lafitte Rothschild Group at Quinta do Carmo.
In 2007 Bacalhôa became the largest shareholder in Aliança, one of the most prestigious producers in the categories of high quality sparkling wines, brandies and table wines. The following year, the company bought Quinta do Carmo, thus increasing its farm to 1200ha of vineyards.Bacalhôa has wineries in the most important regions of Portugal: Alentejo, Setúbal Peninsula (Azeitão), Lisbon, Bairrada, Dão and Douro.
The project implemented in the various vineyards under the theme “Art, Wine, Passion” aims to surprise the most demanding expectations. From the vineyards to wine, the entire winemaking process is involved in various scenarios that include tradition and modernity, with various artistic exhibitions, from painting to sculpture, never forgetting the magnificent natural works.
With a total capacity of 20 million litres, 15,000 oak barrels and an area of vineyards in production of around 1,200 hectares, Bacalhôa Vinhos de Portugal continues its investment in innovation in the sector, with a view to creating wines that provide unique and surprising experiences, with high quality and consistency.
