The Chão dos Eremitas Vineyard
Vineyard planting year
Granitoids with a strong presence of active limestone, and the pH of the soil is slightly basic.
Located in the southern foot of the Serrad'Ossa mountain range.
This place is special, you can feel it! Two streams bring the rainwater from the Sierra keeping the ground cool in the torrid Alentejo heat, never lowering the water level below 5 meters. It was here that the vineyards were formerly planted, and the place was known as the Chão dos Eremitas (Hermit's Ground), "Chão" being the old term for a flat area, and "Eremitas" referring to the Hermit monks of the Order of St. Paul. Here there is evidence of uninterrupted wine production since the 14th century, the vineyard was so important that a Papal Bull in 1397 exempts the "Pauperes Hermitas" from paying tributes (taxes) on their vineyards. But archaeology goes further, as the discovery of the only Phoenician wine amphora in the interior of the country, dating from the 8th century BC, links this place to wine about 900 years before the arrival of the Romans, in what amounts to 3,000 years of wine-related history.
