Quinta dos Santos

Quinta dos Santos offers a place where good taste and quality come together.

A place to linger and reflect.

A place to indulge your senses; to meet; to eat; to stay.

Quinta dos Santos is a family owned and operated wine farm and craft brewery, located in Western Algarve, Portugal.

Our family story begins with Ann and Eugene and their lifelong dream to live on a wine farm. The discovery of two parcels of adjacent land, situated in a beautiful area of Lagoa, lying nestled between Ferragudo and Carvoeiro, cemented this vision.

In late September of 2016, the process of clearing the overgrown and neglected piece of ground began in order to establish a vineyard and new buildings.

Both sons, Kyle and Greg and daughter-in-law, Elayna are now part of this beautiful adventure, with each family member having a dedicated responsibility within the team.

Our focus is on customer service - welcoming visitors, building personal relationships, informing the inquisitive and creating an exceptional, unforgettable and satisfying experience for our guests.

Our Buildings

Measuring eight hectares in total, the farm has three hectares under vine and one hectare of new olives, being Macanilha, Galega, Verdeal and Picual varieties amongst almond, carob, and age-old olive trees.

Also found is endemic vegetation that has been carefully preserved and cared for, especially the Schinus Terebinthifolia and wild thyme, as well as two areas of protected trees, being Cork Oaks and Holm Oaks.

The newly completed buildings - contemporary but having a sense of age and place - incorporate a winery, a craft brewery, a taproom and restaurant and a gallery offering carefully curated Portuguese products.

In the process of preparing the land for planting, an ancient aqua-duct system was discovered, crumbling and forgotten. This has been fully and sensitively restored using local stone, as have all the old stonewalls that were found in a state of disrepair. The farm is now surrounded by exposed limestone walls and is segmented by cobbled drainage channels - a unique feature in the region.

The dilapidated ruin found on the property afforded the family an opportunity to fully restore the space into self-catering accommodation - "Casa Terra"

Delight in the sweetness of "CASA TERRA", a charming three-bedroom cottage, set in the vineyards, offering a relaxing and tranquil stay in an idyllic setting...

Tesouro

Tesouro

Our goal is to produce outstanding wine, as our name suggests - a "treasured" wine.

Taking into account our fantastic soil content and an amazing climate for growing grapes, we are seeking to produce wines as naturally as possible with our ultimate goal being a bio-dynamic wine.

Our maiden harvest is planned for 2019 and we expect to produce red, white and rosé wines and in the later years, a sparkling wine produced in the traditional "champenoise" method.

Escolhido

Escolhido

As it will take a good couple of years before our Tesouro production is made available, we have established a second brand; "Escolhido".

As this name too suggests, we have "chosen" other, very carefully selected grapes, harvested from local vineyards, which will be produced and bottled under this label.

Until our winery becomes operational, we will produce wine in the Lagoa co-operative.
