Quinta da Fonte Souto

The Quinta is situated within the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park and ranges between 490 and 550 metres in altitude. It benefits from cooler conditions than the rest of the Alentejo plain, with higher levels of rainfall. The soils are granite and schist, providing low yields of excellent quality grapes from mature vines. The estate has a traditional manor house with a history of strong connections with the local community, and has an extensive forested area, which includes chestnuts and cork oaks as well as cherry orchards and olive groves. In Portuguese ‘Fonte’ means source of water or fountain, and ‘Souto’ is a chestnut grove. The combination of the two words in the estate’s name symbolises the abundance of water from the estate’s natural springs and its beautiful chestnut groves. The property consists of 207 hectares, of which 42 hectares are planted with vines. We are regenerating 100 hectares of forestry at the estate with indigenous Portuguese tree species, which provide a natural haven for biodiversity and resistance against forest fires.
