Herdade do Monte da Ribeira

Herdade do Monte da Ribeira (HMR) is a huge estate of 1100 hectares located in the municipality of Vidigueira, in the warm Alentejo. Since 1989, 43 hectares are vineyard, a larger part olive grove and most of it consists of Mediterranean forests, including the cork oak. HMR releases most of its wines with the Pousio label. In addition to blends of local grape varieties, since 2018 they also make monocepages: Something quite unusual for Portuguese standards. Despite the high temperatures and the necessary sunshine, the house produces a very fresh and drinkable style.
