The winery José de Sousa Rosado Fernandes exist since 1878 and was acquired by José Maria da Fonseca in 1986, in order to fulfill the long-held dream of producing wine in the Alentejo, a portuguese region loaded with prestige and history.

Located in Reguengos de Monsaraz, this winery keepsalive a tradition initiated by the Romans over 2000 years ago. It is equipped with 114 clay amphorae, a fermentation method as rare as it is old. The old cellars are below ground level and contain the clay amphoras and two tanks, called "lagares" for foot treading the grapes. There is also a new winery equipped with 44 stainless steel vats and all the essential technology for making red and white wines. This is the perfect place to witness the marriage of old and new and to learn more about some exceptional wines.
