About the winery

In the heart of Alentejo region, 180 Km east of Lisbon, in Reguengos de Monsaraz, the Herdade do Esporão was aquired by Finagra with the main porpuse of producing wines of great quality. From 1975 until 1979, the Herdade do Esporão was occupied during the revolutionary and agricultural periods. Only after this period Finagra was allowed to proceed the winery project. Our modern cellars were built in 1987. A new stage of Finagra project was acomplished. In 1989 the first wine "Esporão" was considered one of the best Portuguese wines and three years later the brand "Monte Velho" was launched.

In 1995, after our brands were considered among the best ones, new investments were made. A new area of vineyard was planted and the existent was completely renovated. A dam with 4.000.000 m3 capacity was built, feeding a drip irrigation system that covers all the vineyard. The purchase of Perdigões Estate, with 180 ha of vineyards, the expansion of the cellar and the construction of the wine tourism complex are some of the most recent investments of this dinamic company developing the "Herdade do Esporão".


Consumer Reviews - Herdade Do Esporao - Alicante Bouschet 2005

Arnaud Steve  Vinostar - from 151 reviews    Portugal
**** Very good 
Very fruit driven, lots of raspberry and blackcurrant, good volume, soft body, long balanced aftertaste with a hint of sugar. Very easy drinking, very new world style - it made me remember of some Aussie Shiraz I had recently. Perfect to bring a Coca-Cola lover to the wine world.
And it actually worked pretty well on a very spicy chicken Xacuti (Goa, India dish).
