Cortém is an organic boutique winery producing several different red wines and “Orange Wines” (white wine fermented on skins), all with unique and interesting flavours. We are able to do this by making small lots of wine, usually about 3000 bottles per lot but sometimes less, and taking advantage of the 16 different grape varieties growing in our vineyards. Our wines are dry (less than 1 gr/L sugar), with robust but soft tannins, and are not typically Portuguese in style. They are often at their best after at least 5 years. Some wine lovers have said that some wines are like a Bordeaux or a Cotes du Rhone wine! Our various wine awards confirm that our wines have international recognition but what our customers think, is most important for us! For winemaking details go to our “Winemaking” page.
