2017 Pousio Reserva red
The Herdade do Monte da Ribeira dates back to 1958, being acquired in 1986 by the industrialist Victor Carmona e Costa who, in the following 15 years, not only completely reformed the Herdade but also implemented the entire current productive agricultural structure and winery.
The Herdade is located in the parish of Pedrogão, belonging to the municipality of Vidigueira and next to the village of Marmelar. As such, it has an area of around 1100 hectares, dedicated to winegrowing and forestry.
As one of the main focuses of the estate is wine production, the first vineyard was planted in 1989 and the first harvest appeared in 1992, marketed under the Vidigueira brand. Later the Pousio and Quatro Caminhos brands were added and recently, the Marmelar brand.
