The fortified wines of the Carcavelos DO (1908) were world famous in the 18th and 19th centuries mostly produced from the Marquês of Pombal’s estate around Oeiras. During the 20st century, the area suffered serious depletion from Lisbon’s urban sprawl, to the point of near extinction.
Since 2001 the Municipality of Oeiras (CMO), have rescued and protected winery, land and vineyards and now boast 12.5 hectares of vines, making them the leading producer.
Thanks to much vision and investment, Villa Oeiras is now synonymous with Carcavelos.
As a committed and enthusiastic team, they respect tradition yet explore the essence of this unique terroir and grapes, having won several awards already.
This defines a positive and quality driven new chapter for a special region and a special fortified wine. Visit their historic cellars and tasting room at the Palácio do Marquês in Oeiras.
