Guided Tour and Wine Tasting at Casal de Santa Maria

Enjoy a guided tour of our beautiful estate, vineyards, winery and the wine cellar. Finish with a tasting of 3 wines (2 classic wines and 1 collection wine - Bruma Branco, Tinto and Malvasia or Merlot).

The wines of Casal de Santa Maria are the result of the expression of Nature and the unique terroir that surrounds the vineyards, which are located on the coast of the Serra de Sintra. The Serra de Sintra, makes a natural curtain and shows even more the maritime influence, with milder temperatures and the typical ocean fogs. It is in this scenario of strong “maritime” influence with cool nights, mornings with strong fogs and accompanied by sea breezes, that year after year we create and work our vineyards.

The result is white wines that are reminiscent of the sea, very aromatic, fresh, mineral, elegant, balanced, low in alcohol and with the particularity of having strong salty notes. These are wines that have great aging potential. They are complex and with character, expressing well the unique terroir of the Serra de Sintra.

Our red wines from vineyards planted in the Serra de Sintra, however in areas more sheltered by natural vegetation from ocean winds, have characteristics of fresh climate, typical of vineyards that are implanted in areas of high humidity and without water deficiencies. They are lively in color, with a markedly varietal aromatic part, many balsamic notes, mushrooms, and some minerality, medium and elegant body, with surprising acidity, firm and persistent tannins. We tell those who try them that they remind us of the aromas of the heart of the Serra de Sintra.
