Harvest at Monte da Casteleja 2016

Posted on

Another year and another harvest at Monte da Casteleja!

On this 13th edition we kept of course the “old-fashioned way” of picking and treading the grapes.

After a demanding morning of non-stop picking, everyone was invited for the traditional long and joyfull lunch. At the end of the day, the emotions reached a peak when , inside the cellar, everyone was dancing and treading the grapes, motivated by the dynamic music the dj was selecting.

We are truly grateful to this group of brave people from various countries, full of positive energy that helped us to produce a unique wine… that you will be able to savour some months from now.

Monte Casteleja Rosé in UP Magazine – TAP Portugal

Posted on

Our Monte Casteleja Rosé wine was mentioned in TAP Portugal inflight – UP magazine, in the article “Perfect Weekend – Algarve au naturel“, edition September 2015.

It was in the restaurant Eira do Mel in Vila do Bispo that the authors tasted and were delight by our wine Monte da Casteleja – Rosé.

A definite must-visit in Vila do Bispo. Built in a former farm house, this restaurant has kept its rustic features, which make it very cosy. But its well-deserved fame is all thanks to the talent of chef José Pinheiro, a specialist in recreating the regional cuisine. We feasted on sautéed octopus, shrimp cataplana with black pork and chorizo, and fig ice cream dessert with arbutus-berry sprinkles, lemon and ginger, all accompanied with an excellent rosé, Monte da Casteleja.

UP Magazine focuses on the best that Portugal has to offer and every month prepares exclusive reports, chronicles and articles for over 1,000,000 readers of the paper edition.
