About us our memory is in the wine About us our memory is in the wine
In Amareleja, land of extremely challenging climate, we are permanently inspired by the ancestral practices of the culture of the vineyard, seeking the preservation of the old vines and local grape varieties, valuing the tradition of “Talha wine” for it’s patrimonial heritage, and it´s role in this region’s identity, with pride and respect for the land and for what it offers.
These wines honour the union of two worlds: the “Talha” wine – produced as in the ancient tradition, with grapes from old vines – with a wine of contemporary techniques, with grapes from younger vineyards.
The approximately 14 ha of vineyards are planted in a soil mix with very different characteristics (from sandy loam to sandy clay-loam), very poor and stony. It is in the harshness of the extreme climate of the warmest wine region in the country, that we currently work 10 grape varieties, between new vines and old free-standing vines (over 90 years old).
