Since the 17th century, the Roboredo Madeira family has been producing almonds, olives and grapes in the Douro Superior River and the Beira Interior. Its oldest vineyards are over 100 years old. The aim is to make wines with character, that express the local terroir, but with a more international approach, with elegance, balance and freshness. Almost all vineyards are grown in a biological system, without the use of chemical pesticides, on revitalized and enriched soils only with organic matter. At the winery, built in 2004, the most modern technology is used in the processing of grapes. In the Beira Interior region, in vineyards planted over 650m above the sea level, the wines are commercialized under the Marquês d’Almeida brand. The main grape varieties used are Syria, Malvasia, Arinto and Gouveio for white wines; and Touriga Nacional and Tinta Rori in red wines.
