Although the vine culture in Alentejo is very old, this was one of the last regions to obtain official demarcation. Since then, the growth has been remarkable and, in the last decades, the Alentejo has become a great wine region, both in quantity and quality, being today one of the most important regions in the country. With modern and well-maintained vineyards, an avant-garde oenology and consumer-oriented products, Alentejo has everything to maintain this leadership for many years.

On a sunny slope, surrounded by the peaceful northern landscape of Alentejo, in the parish of Redondo, there is Herdade da Candeeira, composed of vineyards, olive groves and montados.
The proximity of Serra d’Ossa gives thermal amplitudes to the region, which are very important for the differentiation of the wines that are born here, due to their characteristic freshness.
70 ha of vines with white and red varieties, national and international, of which we can highlight Antão Vaz, Verdelho, Roupeiro, Syrah, Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet.
Herdade da Vigia is located in the area surrounding the Vigia dam, which has characteristics favorable to the production of red grape varieties, but most importantly, it is self-sustaining water. The preservation of the surrounding natural landscape and the Vigia Dam enclosure are part of our project.
140 ha of vineyards with only red varieties, national and international, of which we can highlight Cabernet Sauvignon, Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Aragonez and Touriga Franca.
