THE HISTORY OF THE BRAND
The history of Adega Mayor began to be written according to an old dream of Rui Nabeiro, as the fruit of his great passion for wines and for his land, Campo Maior.
The first vines were planted in 1997 and 10 years later the doors opened to the first custom-built winery in Portugal, designed by the architect Siza Vieira.
With the contemporary look bestowed by his granddaughter, Rita Nabeiro, Adega Mayor opens your senses to an Alentejo Mayor in every bottle of its wine and olive oil.
OLIVE OILS AND VINEGARS
Adega Mayor, SA
Designed by Siza Vieira, it was the first custom-built winery in Portugal.
Covering an area of 350 hectares of cork and holm oak, riverside terraces and farmland, Adega Mayor benefits from a Mediterranean ecosystem and an agricultural region with a strong tradition of grape and olive cultivation.
Among the Argamassas, Godinha and Monte da Pina estates in Campo Maior, the wines produced here are unique – resulting from the granite soil, the temperate climate and the geographical proximity to the Serra da São Mamede.
In addition to producing wine, the brand sells other food products, including olive oil and vinegar, offering gastronomic and cultural experiences in an integrated wine tourism service.
It is the mission of Adega Mayor to celebrate Portuguese life and culture through its wines and its people, with a commitment to leave the land to future generations in a better condition than we found it.
