Casa de Sabicos

Syrah & Aragonez

13.30 


This is a house full of history and stories to tell.
We’ll start with Grandmother Sabica’s story. She lived during the second half of the 19th century.

With 8 children to raise – that’s right, 8 children to raise – Grandmother Sabica became a widow. For you to get an idea, her youngest son was only two-years-old when his father died.

All of a sudden, she had two problems to deal with:
1. How am I going to raise 8 children?
2. What am I going to do with a 12 000-hectare farm?

It was here that she decided to introduce vineyard cultivation and wine production as agricultural activities on the farm. This adventure would come to be carried on by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

This decisive moment for Grandmother Sabica came to define the estate’s life for the next almost 200 years.

Currently, her great-grandchildren take care of everything without ever losing sight of the production philosophy that their grandmother implemented at the estate.

It’s in this way, with accumulated wisdom, and modern and technologically advanced means, that Casa de Sabicos is born.

The estate now has a new winery, equipped with the most recent technology available.

An interesting detail about this Casa de Sabicos is that some of their wines are only produced in small quantities, when and only in years of exceptional maturation in which the wine quality is “out of this world”.

We always enjoy knowing what you think of the experience.
