Wines from the Tejo region
Family-owned estate winery with 30 hectares. Dedicated to producing wines of exemplary quality, enhanced by a regional character.
Our story starts with a passion for wine and the Templars history when, back in 1989, we discover old vineyards left to natural succession near Tomar, a city located in the center of Portugal and founded by the Knights Templar. Nourished by a sunny, warm and dry climate, relative cool nights, with limestone-clay and schistose soils, this fertile agriculture region has excellent natural conditions for grape growing.
Inspired by the multi-centenary Templar’s art of winemaking in this region, we embraced our new ambition by building a state-of-the-art winery and gradually restructured the vineyards to achieve a balance of young/old vines, all under the supervision of an experienced technical team.
Reaching top 3 in one of the largest international wine competition strengthened our focus on making world-class wines at affordable prices. Our dedication to quality is consistently recognized by several Gold and Silver medals in rigorous wine competitions and 85+ ratings (Very Good) in renowned international publications.
