Quinta de S. Francisco

Wine-making process: Wines used to obtain this excellent wine spirit have low alcohol content and high total acidity. Distillation is made immediately after the end of fermentation, without adding any sulphur dioxide. Following distillation, the spirits will age in oak casks, and during the ageing process they will be slowly diluted with mineral-poor water until alcohol concentration drops to about 40%.

Allergens information

Contains sulphites.

Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal

Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal (CAS) was established by Abel Pereira da Fonseca in 1926 to administrate the estates that he owned in the region of Bombarral since the beginning of the century, still belonging to the same family.

He planted his first stand-alone vineyards (i.e. vines with no other fruit tree in between) aligned and wired, which was considered very innovating at the time, as there were no tractors. Vineyards were divided into plots, each planted with one sole variety (which was also new at the time). He introduced new varieties. In a separate plot at Quinta do Sanguinhal, he planted 30 different varieties to study their adaptability.

The company has undergone modernization over the past few years: vines were re-established based on traditional varieties as well as new varieties to meet market demand; wine-making and bottling facilities have experienced major investments at technological and equipment levels. The traditional ageing in French and American oak is nonetheless still used.
