Casa de Sabicos, a Family-Owned Winery Since the 19th Century
The Casa de Sabicos Winery has been a reputable family wine estate dating back to the nineteenth century. Granma Sabica started winemaking after her husband’s death in an area of over 12000 hectares. Her children and future generations continued the grape and wine agriculture. Her landmarks and foundations inspire the taste and quality of their wines. Her two great-grandchildren planted new vineyards and set up a new winery equipped with all the latest technology and equipment required for winemaking. The combination of family values and traditions with the modern setup has made the winery an internationally recognizable brand due to its quality.

Portuguese Climate and the Grapes Grown at the Winery

The Mediterranean climate with rainy winters makes the region ideal for vine cultivation. Integrated methods are followed in their vineyards to protect the environment and the health of their vineyards. The major types of grapes grown at Casa de Sabicos are Trincadiera, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet Sauvignon, Touriga Nacional, Syrah, Antão Vaz, Arinto, Siria, and Chardonnay. The best grapes go into the production of red, white, and rosé wines.
Reflection of the Quality of the Terroir
The grapes arrive at their new winery and, after selection, undergo fermentation under controlled temperatures in fermentation vats. It helps to give the wines a desirable fruity taste and intense aroma. Aging of wines takes place in oak barrels until they reach the state of consumption. The wines are exquisite and reflect the quality of the terroir and the hard work behind their production.
