Herdade da Malhadinha Nova
This 200 hectare estate in southern Alentejo, south of Beja, is owned and run by the Soares brothers, João & Paulo, with wife Rita and partner Margareta respectively. They bought the run-down estate in 1998 and restored both land and buildings. They already ran a successful wine wholesale and retail business in the Algarve.
Typical of the Alentejo the property combines cork oaks, olive groves, and local speciality livestock (black pigs and pure breed cattle) with 27 hectares of vineyards. The first wine was produced in 2003 and international awards soon followed.
Winemaker Pedro Garcia has had winemaking experience in Chile, France and Spain. He enjoys the facilities of a modern winery built on a hillside using natural gravity flow. Luis Duarte is the experienced consultant winemaker and Iain Reynolds Richardson the consultant viticulturist. The attractive modern labels feature drawings by João & Rita's children.
