a landmark of life itself,
connected to memories
and to the land ties”
of a passion
From António Parente’s passion for the Region, the vineyard and his Estate, a unique and ambitious project was born. More than producing wines of excellence, character and with the strong identity that defines them, António Parente wants to share with the world the best of what is done in Portugal and to revive the passion for Estremadura wines. The Quinta de S. Sebastião wines are proof of that. With body, structure and elegance, the four references, Grande Escolha, Reserva, White Wine and Mina Velha carry the knowledge of time combined with the refinement of modern winemaking, and the freshness that connects them to the region is felt in each sip. The awards already won are proof of the quality they represent and the passion they are made with.
Quinta de São Sebastião came into my life in 2011 and in the 2012 harvest. This Historical Estate of Arruda dos Vinhos, from 1755, is surrounded by legends and beliefs. 35 hectares of property set in a region that is also historical and millenary in wine production.
Currently, Quinta de São Sebastião exports wines to virtually the entire world, based on two main factors: the people who work on this project and the unique conditions taking place here for the production of world-class wines. (+) >
The various Estates that work with us, the different altitudes, the slopes, and the proximity to the sea are just some of the factors that distinguish where we produce our grapes. To that we add winemaking and production methods that are not very intervening, are environmentally friendly, and that highlight the purest of nature through the wines that we produce here. We produce a wide range of wines for various markets with different profiles, where the provenance and origin factor is strongly marked in every wine and represents the backbone of everything we do. We believe that this factor distinguishes us and is perhaps timeless.
