Torre Do Frade Wine Estate, Situated in High Alentejo’s Portalegre District in the Monforte

The Torre do Frade wine estate is situated in High Alentejo’s Portalegre district in the Monforte municipality. The estate used to be a convent from 1384 to 1834 before the owner’s ancestors bought the property in 1839. The land was vacated in 1980, and when the family retook possession, there was only a damaged tractor and some other tools. After repossession, the five children of the owner divided the land among themselves. Currently, there are three family branches of the winery, namely, Bagulho, Bagulho Vasconcelos, and Bagulho Albino. Apart from wines, they also grow barley, oats, sunflower, grapes, corn, and oak forests. A combination of traditional methods with modern, innovative techniques helps to make top-class wines.

Discover Stunning Grapes

Torre do Frade’s vineyards were developed at the start of the century around 2000. The owners decided to buy around 14 hectares of land near Santo Aleixo. The natural conditions in the area are perfect for the cultivation of vines and the growth of quality grapes. The main grape varieties that grow in their vineyards include Verdelho, Arinto, Viognier, Antão Vaz, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet, Aragonez, Syrah, and Touriga Nacional. Only the best grapes are handpicked and further processed to make their high-quality red, white, and rose wines. A lot of effort is made to use only ecological and sustainable processes in the vineyards and the cellar to maintain the environmental balance and preserve the health of vines for future use. Their wines have a distinct taste that reflects the qualities of the gifted Alentejo terroir.
