Herdade do Mouchao
Family owned Herdade do Mouchão, is an estate now owned by the sixth generation of a British- Portuguese family, based in the Alentejo region of Portugal. In a country steeped in winemaking
history, the name Mouchão is synonymous with wines of distinction. The family-owned estate has been producing wine for over a hundred years and maintains the traditions established in 1901 when the new winery was built. The distinctive character of Mouchão wines derives from three principal characteristics: the Alicante Bouschet grape, the specific terroir and adherence to traditional winemaking methods. At Mouchão grapes are hand-picked, foot trodden in marble cement lined lagares and the wine aged in five thousand litre wooden vats. Mouchão wines are renowned for their longevity, maturing subtly as they age.
