About the VineyardIn a country steeped in winemaking history, the name Mouchão is synonymous with wines of distinction. The family owned estate has been producing wine for over a hundred years and maintains the traditions established in 1901 when the winery was built. The distinctive character of Mouchão wines derives from three principal characteristics: the Alicante Bouschet grape, the specific terroir and adherence to traditional winemaking methods. At Mouchão grapes are hand-picked, foot trodden in marble cement lining lagares and the wine aged in five thousand litre vats. Mouchão wines are renowned for their longevity, maturing subtly as they age.
