We will take you to the heart of the Alentejo, one of the largest regions of Portugal, specifically to the charming city of Évora, surrounded by lush nature with its green and golden fields and a splendid architectural heritage and one of the most famous Portuguese wineries, the Adega da Cartuxa.
THE CARTUXA WINERY
Let us start by telling you a little about the history of the Adega da Cartuxa, which started with José Maria Eugénio de Almeida being the proponent of the vineyard plantation in Valbom’s farm where the Adega da Cartuxa was born, in the vicinity of the Charterhouse Monastery.
The whole brand history is written by Eugénio de Almeida’s family, passing from generation to generation the knowledge and tradition, which makes Cartuxa wines quite unique and singular in the world.
Currently, from the Cartuxa Winery an amazing average of four million bottles are distributed annually, with white, rosé and red wines variety from the Vinea Cartuxa, EA, Foral de Évora, Cartuxa, Scala Coelo and the mythical Pêra Manca brands.
