Herdade do Grous
Herdade dos Grous estate has 700 hectares, 73 are dedicated to top quality wine production and the remains to the bio-horticultural production, olive yard, farming and cattle raising (certified ‘Alentejana’ breed) and champion jumping horses.
During the planting of our vineyards, we paid respect to traditional winemaking processes keeping the climatic conditions of the region in mind. A number of grape types, especially the local red varieties but also international ones, have been selected for cultivation on our estate.
We are using the latest technology as well as traditional ways of winemaking in our purpose-built ‘Adega’. All grapes are hand-picked and follow the process of soft maceration in order to assure superior wine quality. This process is applied to each type of grape separately while the temperature is closely monitored to maximize the potential of each individual grape variety.
72 hectares, sustainably farmed
