Cartuxa reflects the tradition and famed quality of first people to make wine at Cartuxa: Carthusian monks who in 1598 established the Santa Maria Scala Coeli Monastery. With the aim of bringing back to life traditional wine making in the Alentejo, we produced this organic Cartuxa Red from Clay Pot. Using Alicante Bouschet red variety, the entire process is completed in these accient clay pots.
