Wines Moreto

The superior quality of wines from Moreto, on the Left Bank of the Guadiana, and particularly in the Amareleja, Granja and Póvoa de São Miguel triangle, is due to the summer heat that ensures perfect maturation of the grapes, in the subsoil of the region, with the “ solão”, which guarantees the availability of water so that the vines do not suffer from water stress, and the characteristics of the Moreto variety, whose long cycle guarantees a perfect adaptation of the variety to the region and makes it ideal to respond, in the future, to worrying changes weather. It will come as no surprise, therefore, that Moreto is the great red variety in the region, that it is expanding, and that (almost) all producers recognize it as the best.

The commercial launch of the first varietal wine from Moreto was “GA”, from the 2009 harvest, which was a remarkable success in the market and was a pioneer in the recognition of the variety.


The GA Moreto Pé-Franco is an excellent example of wines from the Moreto grape variety from old vines in "pé franco".

Adega da Granja

Courelas dos Aleixos, where most of the old vineyards of Granja Amareleja are found, originate from a large estate that was sold in small lots. These vines with 20 years or more, of typical roman viticulture, planted in free standing, with rods from old vines, conducted in free form (vase or willow head), pruned in gobelet.

The 2018 harvest of this wine won a Gold Medal at the Wines of Portugal Contest in 2021.

José Piteira is a master of Amphora wines. He is a self-taught winemaker, having developed his art with a strong and particular personality, giving it a distinctive signature. He started making talha wines at a very young age, alongside his godfather. Today, winemakers from other production houses come to him to learn how to work this age-old winemaking technique, traditional in the Alentejo wine region.


Anyone who knows his wines and his work knows that he is a protector of the indigenous grape varieties on the left bank of the Guadiana river, such as Moreto.

Vinho de Talha

Adega Marel

"Moreto grapes, from two vineyards – the “Bancaleiro” vineyard planted in 1997 and the older “Asper” vineyard (+- 1950). Harvested on the 30th of August 2021, looking for freshness in this late maturing rustic variety. From the stalk, the Moreto grapes went to two wine amphoras – the amphora of the “Comisário” and the amphora of the “Mal-Talhado”. Totaling 1850 Kg. Os nomes das vinhas e das amphoras are the nicknames of the former owners that we use internally as a tribute to their legacy of work!"

Adega da Granja

Granja Amareleja wines are the purest expression of the tradition of the Alentejo sub-region Granja-Amareleja. This hidden sub-region on the left bank of the
Guadiana, presents very unique soil and climate conditions that create highly distinctive wines. This wine is made with grapes from the traditional grape varieties of the Left Bank of the Guadiana - Moreto, Aragonez, Trincadeira and Alfrocheiro, from rainfed vineyards of small winegrowers.

Adega Marel

"This wine is the result of the union of two worlds of oenology, with a history that begins in the vineyards: from a young vineyard (about a decade old) comes the Trincadeira variety, and from an old vineyard, the Moreto and Trincadeira varieties, of large history, with a wide compass and in which the vine is self-sustaining. We treated these grapes in a different way. Trincadeira, from the youngest vine, was subject to the most recent and common techniques. The grapes from the old vine, however, were treated in the light of the most ancient knowledge, such as Amphora wine making."
