Adega Mayor is located in the Alto Alentejo region of Portugal, in Campo Maior, close to the Spanish border.
It was in this region, with a Mediterranean ecosystem and strong vineyard and olive tree tradition, that the dream of Commander Rui Nabeiro was born.
Its proximity to the Serra de São Mamede, granite soils and temperate climate contribute to the unique character of its wines.
Adega Mayor stands in the Argamassas Estate, in a carefully studied place, compared and chosen as suitable for quality grape production. The vineyard is oriented N-S.
The land has a clay-rich soil with a suitable percentage of limestone. They focused on planting red varieties such as Trincadeira, Castelão, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Syrah and Touriga Nacional, and white varieties such as Antão Vaz and Verdelho.
Adega Mayor stretches over a 350 area of cork oak, riparian galleries and agricultural fields.
On top of the panoramic terrace, in the skyline, we can see the vine and the olive groves of the estate and also Spain and the mountain of Portalegre. With a contemporary look one can reinvent the art of good living.
