The Casa Santos Lima Estates are situated in Alenquer, 45 km up north of Lisbon, in a region where the wine production tradition is centuries old and the typical rural landscapes appear with an enormous beauty. The vineyards in gentle slopes with altitudes between 100 and 220 meters benefit from an excellent sun exposition and a climate slightly tempered by the nearby Atlantic Ocean, 26 km away from our property.
The vineyards re-plantation has been made at a steady pace since 1990, with the noblest Portuguese grape varieties, with a unique regional character, and also, in a smaller proportion with the best international varieties.
In the approximately 200 hectares of vineyards of Santos Lima family, it is possible to find a huge diversity of grapes. The company has adopted several innovative cultural methods as non-mobilisation of the soils between the vine rows, allowing the growth of a natural "green carpet". This method, besides preventing erosion, contributes to an early maturation of the grapes and a natural reduction in average production (key factors in the production of high quality grapes). In 2003 the "Annual Award of Agriculture (Viticulture)" was given to this company by the Portuguese Ministry of Agriculture, as a result of this effort. At Casa Santos Lima, more than 50 different national and international grape varieties can be found, some still in experimental basis.
