Since 1920 that vine cultivation has been present in Herdade Grande, but the design of the current wine area began in 1980, with the plantation of vines until the current configuration of 60 hectares of production.
It houses a wide range of national and international varieties. Their selection was due to their adaptability to the terroir and how they express the identity of Alentejo, and specifically, Vidigueira wines.
GREAT WINES BEGIN IN THE VINEYARD
The experimentalist and the innovative hallmark of the Herdade Grande project that has been implemented by António Lança since 1980, and it has resulted in the conjugation of emblematic varieties from the region with new interpretations of the Vidigueira terroir, complementing the unique character of the produced wines.
Red Varieties: Aragonez, Alicante Boushet, Trincadeira, Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Grossa, Tinta Caiada and Cabernet Sauvignon.
White Varieties: Antão Vaz, Alvarinho, Arinto, Chardonnay, Perrum, Rabigato, Roupeiro, Rabo de Ovelha, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillion, Viosinho and Viognier.
Between viticulture and work in the winery, Herdade Grande implements the processes that best harness the identity, tradition and character-defining of the produced wines.
