Anunciada Velha

The White 2021 was made from a manual harvest, in 15 kg boxes, of Fernão Pires and Arinto grapes harvested together by friends and family on the 24th and 25th of August 2021.

The two grape varieties were harvested in a compromise of ripeness between them. The grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed.

The maceration-fermentation began after 48 hours, with indigenous yeast and “spontaneous” fermentation. The maceration lasted for 32 days, during which only punch-downs or wetting of the cap occurred.

“There are people who embrace us forever. And there are places we never leave, whether it’s for the love they transmit to us, the memories they evoke when we are far away, or the way they welcome us when we return. These people and places deserve to be protected, remembered, and honored, and our wines are born from this purpose: to celebrate Anunciada Velha and the people who are part of its history, paving a new path and a new phase for this place.

Quinta da Anunciada Velha

Quinta da Anunciada Velha, a Templar site in Tomar, is the result of several chapters rich in history and stories. Through this estate passed Arabs, Romans, monks, marquises, diplomats, and farmers.

In the 16th century, it was a Capuchin convent, a time when the Manueline tower was built, which would have served as an oratory, and in the 19th century, on the property of the Marquises of Tomar, the first vineyards appeared in Anunciada Velha along with the first wine label.

In a turbulent period of his life, António Bernardo da Costa Cabral, 1st Marquis of Tomar, made the Convent of Christ, nearby, his residence. The Marchioness of Tomar, Luísa Read, his wife, to occupy her time, decided to distract herself by making wine. She hired a winemaker from Burgundy and planted some vineyards at Quinta da Anunciada Velha. It is said that she produced excellent wine. In the generation of her grandchildren, the corks of the remaining bottles of the “grandmother marquise’s” wine, which she had labeled “Château Thomar”, were still being changed annually.

In a later generation, António Bernardo da Costa Cabral da Costa Macedo said that on this Templar land, where telluric forces converge, one should not intervene. Interpretations aside and vicissitudes inherent to the passing times, the vineyards continued. His son Manuel Costa Macedo, to whom the first toast was made with this wine, continued this mission by respecting the land and what Anunciada Velha represents. He left too soon, leaving it to the current owners to do justice to the land and the place.

It is a small project (1000 bottles), and intended to be so, but nonetheless important to Teresa Júdice da Costa and Filipe Caldas de Vasconcellos (a producer with a project in the Algarve, Morgado do Quintão), the current owners.
