♦ FAMILY OF WINES. WINES OF A FAMILY. ♦
GET TO KNOW A VISIONARY, A FAMILY WITH ALMOST TWO CENTURIES OF HISTORY AND THE CREATORS OF WINES
THAT ARE THE TRUE EMBLEMS OF OUR COUNTRY
Everything began over six generations ago in 1834, with an act of irreverence and audacity from our founder. For some, it may have seemed like a thoughtless act, but for us in the family it was a visionary’s first step.
Families are like that, they believe in us.
Since then, much has happened.
Learning and more mistakes. Improvements and growth. Always as a Family. But something always remained the same. And grew even stronger.
This is what lasts throughout time and this is what we, as a family, will not live without. The perseverance, the will to do more, to create something new, to never forget our past.
And grew even stronger.
This is what lasts throughout time and this is what we, as a family, will not live without.
The perseverance, the will to do more, to create something new, to never forget our past.
We are already in the eighth generation of those who inspire us in our new creations. In ways of reaching farther.
A Family of wines from different regions, different segments, but produced with the same care and passion. And that’s why it doesn’t make sense for us to talk only about varieties, awards, history, authenticity or quality. Two centuries take at least 200 more years to build.
For us it makes sense that, as a family of wines, we offer wines for families. For you, for everyone, a whole family, unique and different.
We hope you will continue to be a part of our family and a part of our history.

5th BEST WINE OF THE YEAR
The prestigious American wine magazine Wine Enthusiast, published in the December edition, the TOP 100 best wines of 2016, distinguishing José de Sousa 2014 as the 5th best wine of the year, rated 93 points and considered the "Editor's Choice".
"2016 IS A YEAR WITH ABOVE-AVERAGE QUALITY"
Following a drought that affected most of Portugal during 2015, the first semester in 2016 was very rainy. Budbreak occurred 15 days later than usual and there was a significant risk of mildew and oidium attacks, given the high level of moisture and mild temperatures, but we treated the vineyards correctly and avoided most of these issues.
