"Unique monocépage of the Antão Vaz grape brings elegance to the dish"

Herdade da Comporta is a beautiful farm on the southwest coast of Portugal. This magnificent nature area is surrounded by sea, island and rice fields creates, among other things, beautiful wines.

The sandy soil and the unique climate of the region, tempered by the proximity of the ocean, form the perfect environment for the cultivation of wine grapes. The grape varieties - such as Aragonez and Trincadeira for red wine and Arinto and Antão Vaz for white wine - are grown on around 35 hectares and treated with the utmost respect.
