The history of this estate dates back to the XVII Century when King Joćo IV had Quinta do Carmo built for a Lady in his Court. Nothing from those days remains in existence, except, in all likelihood, the Quinta do Carmo wine and the Carvalhas Estate from where the wines came and where they continue to be produced today. The Quinta do Carmo estate is situated in the Alentejo region, a few kilometres from Estremoz. It is a typically Alentejan property, with a total of over 1,000 hectares, of which 100 hectares are olive trees, cereals, plantations of oak trees and forests. After a long joint venture with the prestigious Lafitte Rothschild group, Bacalhoa Vinhos de Portugal acquired the entire Quinta do Carmo Estate in 2008, which, at that point, became the centre of winemaking and production centre for all of the Alentejan Bacalhōa Group wines. Recent vintages have produced unique wines that are a blend of terroir and wine-making skill. Quinta do Carmo is distinguished firstly by its soil. It is a sunny wine whose maturity and aromas are typical of its traditional grapes, combined masterfully with additional grapes. The addition of DBR know-how allows this wine to reach new levels of complexity and elegance. Grape varietals - Aragonez 40% to 60%, Alicante, Periquita, Trincadeira 15 to 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah 20 to 40% (since vintage 2000). 12 months in oak barrels, including 35% in new barrels.
