♦ 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.

RELEASES ALAMBRE ICE
Following a tasting of Canadian Icewines done by the winemaking team at José Maria da Fonseca, an idea was brought to life to produce a similar wine, even though the climatic conditions and the region of the Setúbal Península are quite different from the cold vineyards where Icewine is produced. This wine was named Alambre Ice and is now being released.
HIGHLIGHTED IN REVISTA DE VINHOS
In the March issue of Revista de Vinhos, Portuguese wine magazine, Hexagon 2009 was awarded 17.5 points, being considered the top wine from the Península de Setúbal and was one of the wines highlighted in the cover of the magazine.
