Herdade do Arrepiado velho is located in Sousel, about 40 km from Portalegre, in Alto Alentejo. In 2001, a long abandoned area was reborn. With a total area of about 100 hectares, the dam stands out between vineyards and olive groves, in a mixture of colours and tranquillity, as only alentejo offers. In 2002, 33 hectares of vineyards were planted from scratch, in a terroir that combines, in a rare way, schist soils of steep slopes with mild temperatures and plenty of water, natural characteristics that indicate great potential. David Both (winegrower) and António Maçanita (winemaker) combined their knowledge, innovation and dedication, selected the grape varieties and created the already nicknamed “Vinha dos 100 pontos” (100 points vineyard). From 2012, the vineyard will be under the responsibility of Nuno Ramalho, current winemaker. In the reds, Touriga Nacional, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon and in the whites, Antão Vaz, Chardonnay, Riesling, Viognier and Verdelho. In charge of the project is António Antunes, responsible for the production of unique and seductive wines, which are born from modern oenology combined with tradition and Marta Neto, responsible for marketing and bold and elegant design. Together they break down barriers and pre-made ideas, making wines out of the box but always with quality at the top of their ambitions.
