Casa Relvas is a family project, started in 1997 in São Miguel de Machede, in Redondo, by Alexandre Relvas, which aims to continue the history of five generations with a strong passion for the Alentejo and its genuine nature. Over the years, the family has grown along with the business and it didn’t take long for it to total about 750 hectares of Montado forest, 225 hectares of olive groves, and 350 hectares of 100% integrated production vineyards.

With the three estates – Herdade de São Miguel, Herdade da Pimenta and Herdade de São Miguel de Machede – Casa Relvas has the capacity to produce 6 million bottles of wine annually, 70% of which is to meet the needs of the foreign market, being present in over 30 countries worldwide, offering the best of the Alentejo.
