Our cellars house 19 epoxy-lined concrete tanks and six stainless steel vats for maturing the colheita wines, as well as around three hundred 225 and 500-litre French, American and Portuguese oak barrels for maturing the Reserva wines and part of the Assobio wines. However, what really stands out are the eight 10,000-litre vats for ageing ports, the twenty certified 550-litre barrels for the same type of wine and the 145 kegs of old port. A varied selection that allows us to create extraordinarily rich and complex Tawny ports.

The sophisticated temperature and humidity control system of the Quinta dos Murças cellars is one of the most impressive and innovative aspects of the farm. The system uses only the water from the farm mines, combined with underground system throughout the cellar, which facilitates ecological and functional temperature control.
