Vineyard with certified organic farming.

The 2023 agricultural year was hot and dry. During the vegetative rest period (Autumn -Winter) there were mild temperatures and higher precipitation values ​​than in 2022, however, in Spring-Summer temperatures were much higher and precipitation was very low. In the vineyard, because of all these factors, there was an advancement in phenology. The harvest was early and concentrated in a few weeks, with the optimal maturation of the various varieties being reached quickly, providing aromatic, intense and highly complex wines.

More Information

Esporão Reserva was the first wine produced by Esporão, in 1985. It was born from our desire to produce the best wines in Alentejo. Over the years, it has been a wine that has led us to innovate, to grow, to look at our origins, to care about nature and see beyond. We have adopted sustainable agricultural practices, more recently we have converted all our vineyards to organic farming, built new wineries and traveled to other markets, taking Alentejo and Portugal to the world.

Art accompanies Esporão Reserva from the first moment. Every year we invite a new artist to illustrate our labels and each work tells a story that is completed within.
