“Campo Maior is the Land i touch with my hands, i water with my feelings and i guess with my heart.”
Its proximity to the Serra de São Mamede, granite soils and temperate climate contribute to the unique character of its wines.
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.
This is where Adega Mayor stands, in a carefully studied place, compared and chosen as suitable for quality grape production. The vineyard is oriented N-S.
It is located near the Caia river, in an area renowned for excellent quality wines that have been produced there for many years. The vine is oriented NW-SE.
The land has a clay-rich soil with a suitable percentage of limestone. We 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.
