predominantly clay – dating back to the Jurassic period


Quinta de Chocapalha has a natural freshness, with morning dew, which the locals call «Invisible Rain»



In the summer, the temperature is a little above 30º C, while in the winter it ranges between 8 and 14º C.

It all started in 1987 when Alice and Paulo were looking for a property that would become their Family Project and where they could make great quality wine.

Of the total of 70 hectares, 46 are planted with vineyards. The Pêra Rocha pear orchard, with ‘Pêra Rocha do Oeste’ Protected Designation of Origin, occupies 4.5 hectares and the remaining area is comprised of various woods, some of which are extremely old – supposedly, the oldest date back to the 14th century, and the olive trees create a border along the estate’s boundaries.

The white varieties are Arinto, Viosinho, Gouveio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The red varieties are Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Castelão, Syrah, Touriga Franca, Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.

However, the harvest is just the final phase of a continuous cycle. The painstaking work to achieve the best quality grapes, a mandatory requirement to fulfil our goals, starts virtually after the harvest.

Grape picking follows specific criteria, established in order to obtain the best qualitative results, according to the fruit’s stage of ripeness. The harvest is carried out separately, variety by variety and plot by plot.
