Herdade do Cebolal is located on the Costa Vicentina, ten kilometers away from the coast. 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.
