The Casal Branco estate is located in Almeirim, on the southern bank of the Tejo River, and has been owned by the same family for over two hundred years. Of the estate’s 2,718 acres, 350 are under vine planted on Miocene sandy soils (Charneca). Most of the grapes planted are native Portuguese varietals including Castelão, Trincadeira, Fernão Pires and Alvarinho. The wines are vinified in the estate’s 19th century winery using both the best traditional and modern techniques, such as foot treading in open tanks with temperature control. Casal Branco’s commitment to tradition and excellence has resulted in international recognition, contributing to the modern wine renaissance of the Tejo region.
