herdade barranco do vale
HBV – Herdade Barranco do Vale is located in São Bartolomeu de Messines, in a place called Campilhos, between the sea and the mountains of Monchique and Caldeirão, Algarve (south of Portugal).
The property extends for about 100ha of real natural beauty, where in addition to the vineyards there are cork, carob, olive and pine trees.
It is a project driven by love: to the previous generations and to the local culture.
Wine production started in 2016 with 4 references. 3 reds (2 single-varietal and 1 blend) from the Aragonez and Castelão varieties and 1 rose Negra Mole, all classified as Reserve.
To the existing grape varieties (Negra Mole with about 60 years old and Aragonez and Castelão with 20) the new generation added white grape varieties that started producing in 2018 and whose first bottles arrived to the market in May 2019.
The main motivation of HBV is:
to preserve and develop the family legacy | To provide high quality products
OUR LABELS ARE SPECIAL
LETTERS TO GRANDFATHER
“Every year we write a letter to my grandfather telling him what we have done. We tell our story.
I want to take what my grandfather left us and do something different.” – Ana Chaves
