The Domain: Associated with Paco dos Cunhas de Santar is Sociedade Agrícola de Santar, a manor house of the XVII and XVIIi Centuries. Hedges, boxwoods, and labyrinths of flowers surround a perfectly preserved cellar.
Built in granite, with its historical tiles, it houses the most modern and advanced technologies in an ancient environment. Top quality wines are produced here, in a 400 year-old structure.
On the balcony of the tasting room, you can taste wines of different ages. Next to the cellar, the acclaimed vineyards are surrounded by pine trees and chestnut groves. The high-quality grape varieties produce the acclaimed white and red wines of Casa de Santar, ranging from all market requirements, and the Late Harvest, for dessert.
In 2007, Sociedade Agrícola de Santar, with its Casa de Santar wines, was elected Producer of the Year, by Revista de Vinhos (Portugal).
