Now in the 4th generation of the same family, who overcomes the challenges of the modern day through the tradition that lives on with us and ensures the quality of our products – wines, sparkling wines and “aguardentes” (old brandy).
“Authenticity” and “Tradition” are the first two words that come to visitors’ minds.
The countryside is the first attraction, a 35 hectares stretch of vineyards, where Loureiro, Arinto and Alvarinho white, and Borraçal and Touriga Nacional red grape varieties are predominant. It wasn’t until after the revolution of 25 of April 1974 that planting up to the middle of the field was authorised. Up until then, the vines were grown around the edge of the field. The Country Manor House, with its original features preserved, is set in a rural area that transmits all of the serenity of past times..
There is, at Quinta do Tamariz,, an enchantment of tones that transform themselves and blend in together, a cosiness about its rurality, and a charm in its history. This place is perfectly suited to those who enjoy once in a lifetime experiences. Here, life tastes different and can be savoured in a unique way.
