Description

The history of Casa de Vilacetinho is somewhat intertwined with the history of the Vinhos Verdes. Located in Alpendurada, part of Marco de Canavezes, it’s one of the oldest brands of the region, adding important milestones to the history of Portuguese wines.

Going back in time, Vilacetinho could be considered a giant when compared to the sizes of other properties in the Douro region, due to unification of 2 large estates, which were originally part of the Benedictine Monastery of Alpendurada.

In that time, it was little more that 100 hectares of agricultural land, in a plane right next to the river Douro – a kind of latifundia in a region characterized by smallholdings. The property’s ex-libris was the elegant Casa (house) of Vilacetinho, a manor house of the XVII and XVIII century, surrounded by an erudite garden that separates the house from the vineyards.

The Vilacetinho estate due to its size and exceptional agricultural characteristics, is therefore a unique property in the context of the region. Unique wines are produced in this estate, true embodiment of the distinct terroir that gives them life. Wines with character and distinguished, with certain features of Champagne wines.

Appreciated all over the world, the wines of Casa de Vilacetinho have also eternalized some of the most remarkable moments of Portuguese wines. One of those memories goes back to 1957, year that was marked by the visit of Queen Elizabeth II of England to Portugal, to whom was served the wines of Casa de Vilacetinho, chosen by the English themselves among several wines presented.
