We have not used herbicides and pesticides in our vineyards since 2009.
A long journey where we learned that organic farming enhances the ideal conditions to produce wines with greater identity and sense of place. We respect nature’s cycles and protect ecosystems, valuing biodiversity and natural resources, the health and fertility of our soils, increasing the quality of the grapes and the resilience of our vineyards.

Monte Velho has been part of Esporão’s history since 1992.
Quality and consistency have marked its path over the years, along with constant innovation that are an integral part of its origin and growth. It took a while, but the family is growing.

Monte Velho Organic was born in a naturally, bringing this wine closer to our territories. Originated in Reguengos de Monsaraz, it is produced exclusively with organically produced grapes, in poorer and stonier soils, in a continental climate that is characterized by the region’s strong thermal amplitudes.

Made from regional grape varieties, it reveals the typical character of its origin, it is more intense in color and aroma, it is richer and the texture is denser, characteristics that reinforce its identity.


Organic Agriculture

Made slowly, in Portugal

Like wine, ceramics, pottery and tapestry are arts that cannot fake time. They advance to the rhythm of the hands that make them and the processes that complete them. 11 hours to embroider 160 grams of wool, 16 hours to sew a piece of clay and six months for the wine to arrive at you. Slowly so it takes as long as it needs

Four stories to Discover with time

We challenged an embroiderer, an oenologist, a painter and a potter to create at her own pace. Over the course of months, we entered its ateliers, workshops and cellars, closely followed the processes and got to know their stories. Four stories with the same common denominator - time.
