We are a small family vineyard with the great mission of recovering the glory of Algarve wine
Quinta dos Capinhas is one of the most promising new wine producers in the Algarve. It is one of the main actors in the renaissance of viticulture in the south of Portugal.
What started as a dream to unite the family in our grandparents’ lands, became a bucolic refuge with award-winning wines.
Join us and experience a journey back in time to the golden age of Algarve wine.
Quinta dos Capinhas was created in a joint effort to revive the vineyards of the land where our family lived for generations. It was 2013 when we returned to live in the land where our grandparents lived, between the Porches hills and the Algarve sea.
As the family began to take root again, we quickly realized that this was the land we should cultivate.
We extended the property, delved into local winemaking techniques, and began to realize an old dream of making wine to share. Today, different grape varieties provide the perfect pairings for the wines the family loves to taste.
Our mission is to help restore Algarve wine to its glory. We started by bringing wine and life back to the lands Porches, Lagoa wine region.
Viticulture is a full-time all-year-round challenge, but we’re up for it. While we trust winemaking techniques with our enologist Joao Marques do Ó, we continue to learn how to make the best use of our terroir with engineer Joaquim Imaginário.
Above all, we believe that all this hard work and its fruits must be shared with friends and family.
The Quinta dos Capinhas wine farm is open for visitors who want to taste our delicious wines in the heart of the vineyard – and anyone who would like to share this dream with us.
