How we started

Our journey started in 1998 when we acquired the estate which had belonged to the Luiz Gomes family for many years. Our first wine, Azamor 2003, was produced from the oldest sectors of the vineyard. During 2004, the whole vineyard was harvested and we were unsure what quality we would obtain. We were pleasantly surprised with the vintage providing grapes that were  deliciously fruity with an unusual balance and freshness. The Petit Verdot grape variety, picked & fermented with a touch of “Monvedré”, astonished us so much that we decided to age the wine in French oak barrels. Our Single variety Petit Verdot was born. It was also during this vintage (2004) that two of our most iconic wines emerged: Azamor Selected Vines and Icon d’Azamor. 2004, it turned out, was one of the best vintages of the decade.

Our aim is to improve our wines every vintage, year after year.  In fact every season, our unique fruity, complex, beautifully balanced and elegant wines continue to please clients all over the world.

By creating authentic wines which express the unique character and tradition of our vineyard. We are considered one of the top producers in the Alentejo region in Portugal.
