About:  Casa Santos Lima has been a family business for four generations and was founded by Joaquim Santos Lima who by the turn of 19th century was amongst the greatest producers and exporters of Portuguese wines. Since 1990, Jose Oliveira da Silva, the founder's great grandson assumed a full time commitment to wine activity. He replanted a big part of the vines and modernised all the productive structure. With the goal of producing quality grapes to make and bottle his own quality wine, the company worked hard to develop a multi-brand strategy.
 

 Casa Santos Lima owns a group of several estates covering an area of 280ha and is located in the Alenquer county, the most prestigious DOC appellation within the Lisboa (Estremadura) region.

The vineyards produce excellent quality grapes and the wines have a unique regional character well known for the concentration of fruit and colour in the wines. These characteristics are possible not just due to the soil and climatic conditions but also because of the “Sustainable agriculture" (use of non-toxic products and limited fertilisation). The frequent press references, national and internationally, about this company and its wines is a testimony of the quality of the work and the products presented under the Casa Santos Lima brand.

These award winning wines are made using only the first, and best, free run juice and are great value for money.

Tasting Notes:  Aromas of ripe red fruits with a good balance of oak which is the result of 4 months in oak barrels. It is a very well balanced wine that has a long and pleasant finish.  This is a beautiful fruity light wine and in the height of summer is beautiful drunk as a chilled wine.
