Tagus River, Muge, Portugal
Casa Cadaval’s history dates back over 400 year when the Palace of the Muge housed European royalty. In the beginning of the 19th century the house fell under the Dominion of Casa Cadaval when Dona Maria de Faro (Countess of Odemira) married D. Nuno Álvares Pereira de Melo, to become the first Duke of Cadaval. Today Dona Maria’s granddaughter Countess Teresa Schönborn is now the fifth generation of women to run the estate.
The vineyards are influenced by the presence of the former Tagus Delta endowed the soils with maritime minerals that today influence the wines of Casa Cadaval, giving them a unique freshness, minerality and elegance.
Casal da Coelheira
Casal da Coelheira is a family owned estate alongside the great Tagus River (Rio Tejo in Portuguese), just one hour from Lisbon. The 64 hectares of vineyards benefit from the Mediterranean climate and the sandy soils which stress the vines.
A small pine tree forest inside the farm provides a home to a wide range of animals. The most abundant, the rabbit (coelho in Portuguese), gave his name to the Estate – “Casal da Coelheira,” roughly translated “little farm where the rabbits are born.”
Quinta da Devesa
