Herdade do Portocarro
Herdade do Portocarro” is an integral part of the Setúbal Peninsula demarcated region. It consists of a rice field, next to the Sado, where rice with its own brand -Loverice – is produced, and an area of hillsides, where the 18 hectares of vineyards are located. The name of the estate is inspired in the first place by the existence of a high point, formerly called “car”, located in the highest place of the region. Secondly, by the small wharf that has marked the landscape for many centuries, since the times when transport was mainly by river. From the beginning, Herdade do Portocarro has been producing deeply original wines. Its first wines – Herdade do Portocarro, Anima and Cavalo Maluco – were immediately positioned at the highest level of national production. The project focuses on a philosophy of producing high quality wines in limited and exclusive quantities. Wines that impress and enchant, providing unique moments for the most demanding appreciators. The wines from Herdade do Portocarro have an intense and complex personality, tense and earthy, associated with extraordinary elegance and freshness. They are wines for a sophisticated, cultured and sensitive consumer who seeks and likes to taste the difference.
