Over the years, this wine has established an indelible identity that goes beyond Herdade do Esporão. With grapes from Herdade do Esporão and partner suppliers accompanied by our agricultural team, combining varieties from all over the Alentejo, Monte Velho reflects the diversity and character of an entire region.
That story begins with integrated production methods; with the banning of pesticides and herbicides in the vineyards and implementing a more rational use of resources being some of the most important practices. For us, responsible production is crucial for soil quality and fertility, for the vineyard’s natural self-protective capacity and, of course, for the quality of our wines.
With every vintage of Monte Velho, our winemakers sense the same challenge and responsibility. The careful selection of the best grapes from the different sub-regions of the Alentejo is one of their most important tasks, and where the essence of this wine’s identity can be found.
Its aromas and flavours represent its origins in our country and the world. Monte Velho has grown beyond the Alentejo, establishing itself as a benchmark in the region and Portugal.
