This proximity to the Atlantic and the soils rich in schist, clay, and limestone confer unique characteristics of freshness, a high concentration of acidity and minerals on this wine. This property belongs to the same family for more than a century.
The fourth and fifth generation of winemakers created a new project, the “terroir wines” or “land parcels wines”. The wines Herdade do Cebolal Land Parcels represent three brothers.

the rebel character of the Shale Parcel and the elegance of the Limestone Parcel.
