Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal

Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal (CAS), established in 1926 by Abel Pereira da Fonseca, sits at Bombarral, north of Lisbon, and remains in the hands of his family. He was something of a visionary; the first to plant vines without other crops alongside them in the vineyard, training the vines on wires and planting in plots of individual varieties on the sandy-clay soils rather than the mixed ‘field blends’ so common then and still to be found today. He also introduced new varieties and in one plot experimentally planted 30 different varieties to observe how they fared. Over the years the company has modernised while planting more local varieties alongside international ones, investing in new equipment and technology, while maintaining the use of French and American oak barrels for some of the wines.
