Quinta do Carmo
Quinta do Carmo , 7100-040 , Estremoz - Alentejo
The history of Quinta do Carmo dates back to the end of the 17th century. King João IV ordered the construction of Quinta do Carmo for a lady of his royal court. There is nothing left of those times except, perhaps, the wine Quinta do Carmo and the Herdade das Carvalhas, where the wine came from and where they are still produced today.
Quinta do Carmo is located in the Alentejo, a few kilometres away from Estremoz. It is a typical estate of Alentejo, with a total area of 1.000 hectares that includes 100 hectares of olives, cereals, cork oak plantations and forests.
The Quinta is a result of a long joint venture with the prestigious group Lafite Rothschild. In 1998, Comendador José Berardo became the main shareholder of Bacalhôa group, pursuing the company's mission of modernizing the viticulture and oenology techniques. He invested in planting new vineyards, in the modernization of the wineries and in the acquisition of new properties. In 2008, Bacalhôa Vinhos de Portugal acquires the whole Quinta do Carmo from the Lafite Rothschild group, making it the centre of the vinification and production of all wines from the Alentejo of the Bacalhôa group.
The cellar, of attractive and modern lines, underwent considerable renovations concerning technology and wine production techniques. High quality wines, such as the famous Quinta do Carmo white and Quinta do Carmo Reserva, among others, are produced here. These wines have a huge success not only in Portugal but abroad as well.
