The event will present the miscellaneous portfolio of this producer that has the support of Rui Reguinga as an oenologist. The initiative is organized by ViniPortugal, together with Herdade Paço do Conde.
 
Herdade Paço do Conde states that “Wine is born of the Earth. Every wine has its own personality. Each terroir in Herdade Paço do Conde is a challenge. Each wine is the expression of a unique marriage of terroir, grape variety, blend and vintage, inspired by the knowledge of generations.” This passion for land is shared in every bottle of wine and olive oil produced by Herdade Paço do Conde.
 
The history of Paço do Conde Estate goes back to the end of the century XIV, having been mentioned since 1378 in the beginnings of the Kingdom of Portugal. Much of the "Herdade Paço do Conde" is located between the vestiges of an old Roman castle next to the Guadiana and the ancient Roman city of "Vilares".
 
The Herdade Paço do Conde has belonged to the same family for more than three centuries. Founded in 1928 with the name Sociedade Agrícola Paço do Conde, is one of the oldest agricultural enterprises in the country. The management is ensured by the current owners, José António Ferrão Castelo Branco, Luis Miguel Ferrão Castelo Branco and Maria Luísa Castelo Branco Schmidt, grandchildren of the founder.
 
Planting began in 1995, after choosing areas with the right soil, exposure to the sun and vine variety. In the 3,000 hectares of the Estate, in addition to the 210 hectares of vines and the 1.700 hectares of olive groves, the Herdade enjoys the benefits of fields of wheat, sunflower, corn, orchards, as well as natural and sewn pastures. Diversity of species and cultivation enable the coexistence of traditional species of flora and fauna, a harmony which is reflected in the wines and olive oil of Herdade Paco do Conde.
The wine tasting costs 6 euros and requires registration until 03/03 to the e-mail provas.salalisboa@viniportugal.pt
