Vast plains, punctuated by some forests and extensive olive groves, are the dominant landscape of the Alentejo region. It was here that, in the early nineteenth century, Thomas Reynolds moved, aiming the cork business. Three generations later, his grandson John Reynolds acquired a 900 hectare property, called Herdade do Mouchão. Here, the cork activity family eventually add the wine production. They were planted several vineyards and in 1901 built a traditional winery, thick and white adobe walls and a high ceiling height, all surmounted by a magnificent roof of Portuguese vain tile. It is thought that it was also by John initiative that the first plants of Alicante Bouschet grape were brought from France. Then, in 1929, he installed the distillery, the same as today is used for brandy produced Mouchão.
