Torre de Palma wines

Herdade da Torre de Palma is located at the heart of the Alto Alentejo wine region, more specifically in Monforte, Portalegre. This project is focused on the production of signature wines, such as our blend of Arinto and Alvarinho varietals. Our wines respect the terroir in which they have grown and are mostly handcrafted, separated into small lots.

Winemaker

Duarte de Deus, agronomist and winemaker, started working in 2004. He has worked with some respected winemakers, such as the Australian Peter Bright who was considered the world’s best winemaker in 1993, and who most influenced Duarte’s style. Torre de Palma’s wine project was embraced by Duarte in 2017. This has resulted in a few exceptional wines (in the process of ageing) as well as some ideas to be developed and launched in the future.

Vineyard

We have planted 7 different varietals in 7 hectares of a light clay soil with a touch of limestone, schist, sandstone and marble. The vineyard is influenced by the harsh climate of the São Mamede hills, namely wide temperature variations - which are of paramount importance to extend grapes’ maturation period. The rugged soil and the vineyard’s position allow for a strong natural ventilation. To put it simply, we have the perfect conditions to produce unique wines in line with the surrounding nature.

White varietals: Arinto, Alvarinho and Antão Vaz | Red varietals: Touriga Nacional, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet and Tinta Miúda

Winery

Torre de Palma’s hallmark is its boutique winery, which also symbolizes the estate’s wine culture. The main aim was to build a traditional winery with its small marbled (marble from the region) wine-presses, where the grapes are trodden and the red ones fermented. One can also find refrigerated cement deposits. Lastly, this area includes a room with large wooden barrels and a wine tasting room.

Wine Experiences

Torre de Palma’s winery offers a number of wine experiences. It is open for daily visits and tastings, besides its various wine events including the tasting of local products. Additionally, the Clube de Vinho Torre de Palma (Torre de Palma’s Wine Club), is intended to showcase first-class wines from other Alentejo producers.

Discover all the wine-related experiences at Torre de Palma Wine Hotel which also bring together the best of Alentejo gastronomy. You can also know more about events happening like the Wine Club or the season harvest.
