Founded by Ignacius of Loyola – later Saint Ignacius – in 1540, the Order of Jesuits was devoted to missionary and educational work. It was to those ends that  Jesuits came to Évora, firstly to set up the College of the Holy spirit (Colégio Espirito Santo) around 1551, and later, in 1559, to create the University of Évora.  A Jesuit  rector of the University,  Father Pedro Silva, acquired Quinta de Valbom in 1580 to house the university’s teaching body. The building  of  what came to be called the Jesuit Retreat (Casa de Repouso dos Jesuitas) took 10 years to complete, and resulted in a large, many-roomed building, complete with refectory and chapel.

    The year of 2019

     

    We had a generally dry and mild viticultural year. During the summer months we had wide diurnal temperature ranges, with hot days and cool nights, which favoured gradual progression of the maturations and the preservation of good levels of acidity. The grapes, aided by late August rain, were in fine condition at harvest, showing great freshness and aromatic exuberance. Yields were low. The wines are very elegant, expressive, taut and with remarkable texture
