The Quinta do Carmo winery is located in the Alentejo wine region, east of Lisbon. It is a joint venture with the Domaine Baron de Rothschild of Bordeaux and has therefore brought some French winemaking techniques to Portugal. Nevertheless Quinta do Carmo is a quite traditional winery with not as much modern winemaking technology as one sees in some places in Portugal. The top cuvees of the estate are aged in oak barrels in the barrique cellar. Near the winery there is also a cork oak forest – Portugal being the world’s biggest producer of natural corks. The winery is surrounded by the vineyards.
