Monte da Ravasqueira, besides being a family estate, it is also a fast-growing wine producer, now producing wines from three different regions in Portugal. Based in Arraiolos, Alentejo, the 3000 hectares of property give rise to more than five Alentejo brands besides incorporating the production of other wine brands, that are originated in the Lisbon and Tagus regions.

 

This wine is a tribute to José Manuel de Mello, for his excellence as an entrepreneur and for his passion for wine, but also a tribute to the Alicante Bouschet variety, that became a symbol of the region. In 2014, this grape variety developed a unique balance, allowing to produce the first and only 100% Alicante Bouschet wine ever produced at Monte da Ravasqueira.
Just over three hectares gave rise to 6,686 bottles, in an exclusive and special production, thanks to precision viticulture. This wine aged for 28 months in French oak barrels and 12 months in bottle, which will allow a positive evolution over the next 20 years.
