Monte São Sebastião

"Monte S. Sebastião"`s history started in 1950, when the owners of the estate, at the time, started an agricultural program where terraced vineyards were planted as well as other cultures such as olive and almond trees. This program also included the construction of a small winery with the tradicional “lagares” for wine processing and a small house for the cottier of the estate.

Currently, the estate is owned by one of the most prestigious families in Murça, a family in wich agriculture and in particular, viticulture and wine, is a way of life. For generations we have developed innovative viticultural practices respecting nature and natural life.

Our estate, or quinta, has 50 Ha of land, for the production of grapes, wine and olives, and is located in the Douro Demarcated Region, specifically in the Cimo Corgo Sub-region, wich extends from the junction of the Corgo river and the Temilobos stream to Cachão da Valeira.
