Casa de Sabicos wines are created mostly based on traditional grape varieties that exist in the Family's vineyards, and are the result of the joint fermentation of the grape varieties (field blends), as the traditional winemaking. As a result, we have wines with a strong character and identity, with the characteristics of each grape variety exceptionally balanced. 

The grape varieties used in Casa de Sabicos wines mix traditional and international varieties more commonly used in Alentejo wines. The primary red grapes include Trincadeira, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Alfrocheiro, Touriga Nacional Tinta Caiada, with small production of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The main white grape varieties are Arinto, Antão Vaz, Fernão Pires and Chardonnay.

The labels are created from original watercolours of the producer.

Some wines age in French or Portuguese oak barrels (from 6 to 18 months) and followed by a variable time of ageing in bottle in a chamber with controlled constant temperature.  

A few of the Casa de Sabicos wines are produced in small quantities and only in years of absolutely exceptional maturation. One such wine is 'Avó Sabica', so far launched only three production years: 2004, 2011 and 2013 (currently in the market), or 'Joaquim Madeira' red, a signature wine only produced in 2004, 2007 and 2011.


Joaquim Madeira, Avó Sabica’s great-grandson, was the person behind the vine planting, and also the creator of the traditional wines of Casa de Sabicos. His extensive experience in viticulture and winemaking is still reflected in the unique and outstanding characteristics of the Casa de Sabicos wines.


Strict control levels are maintained throughout the winemaking process, and the wisdom accumulated over the years contributes to the production of unique and high-quality Alentejo wines, making Casa de Sabicos a brand that represents the exceptional wines of Portugal.
