Winemaker's Notes:

Santo Isidro was founded in 1958, after the Portuguese government granted winegrowers land in the small village of Pegoes. The winery covers a total of 900 hectares owned by 140 of winegrowers producing 70% red and 30% white. The winery and vineyards are located in Terras do Sado, the coastal region of the Setubal peninsula. This area benefits from the mineral-rich sandy soils where both international and native grape varieties can be grown. Santo Isidro de Pegoes is one of the most forward thinking co-operatives and their chief winemaker, Jaime Quendera, is a leading wine entrepreneur in Portugal, offering advice to over 20 other wineries throughout the country. The winery boasts the most up to date equipment; a computerised, temperature controlled modern winery, with 90 stainless steel vats, pneumatic presses, 1,600 oak barrels and modern bottling lines. They produce a wide range of wines that offer excellent value for money. Vintage: Grapes: 40% Chardonnay, 30% Arinto, 30% Pinot Blanc. Vinification: The vineyards benefit from a Mediterranean and Continental climate. The vines are grown in sandy soils and harvested at the end of August. The grapes undergo a short skin maceration followed by fermentation in French and American oak barrels. The wine is then aged for 4 months in oak barrels followed by 6months to 1 year in bottle prior to release. Tasting note: Straw with lemon hints, a full flavoured wine, full bodied with a creamy vanilla oak character. Serve: At 14°C with grilled chicken or fish. Evolution: Will age well for up to 3 years from vintage

1. It all started when the big landlord and beer magnate, José Rovisco Pais, donated his Pegões properties to the Lisbon State Hospitals. On these properties, the Government implemented a large “colonization” project, donating land to thousands of agricultural workers and directing the plantation of 2900 acres of vineyards. These workers became known as “Colonos”. The Cooperative was estabilished on March the 7th 1958 in order to give technical and logistic support to the “colonos”. Part of the support consisted in the reception and processing of their grapes. The first Pegões wines where than born. 2. At the beginning the Cooperative received financial and technical support from the State. As a consequence of the Portuguese revolution of 1974, the Cooperative was taken over and a period of instability followed. This process was later reversed and over the last fiftheen years, the Cooperative followed a systematic strategy of modernization and finantial consolidation whit the key objective of continuously improving the quality and value of its wines. During this period, the Cooperative spent about seven million Euros to buy new vinification and cold stabilization equipment and several batteries of vats for fermentation under controlled temperature. Other equipment purchased included pneumatic and vacuum presses, a modern bottle filling, labelling and packaging line, effluent treatment facilities, cellars for wine aging whit more than 1.000 casks, improvements to the buildings and access roads, etc. Advanced computing systems were installed for administrative and process control purposes. The Cooperative is certified in accordance with NP EN ISO 9001:2000 and HACCP. What Makes The Difference? “The Pegões Terroir” The Pegões Terroir is located between two Nature Reserves – the Tagus estuary to the Northwest and the Sado on the Southwest, on the east side of the Arrabida hills and on the west side of the Alentejo´s province clays. The Pegões region is unique in climate and soil conditions. The climate is Mediterranean, type and the soil, named “Pliocenico de Pegões”, is a sandy soil formed over millions of years by sand transported by the rivers Tagus and Sado. It is climate / soil combination that gives birth to the unique Pegões wines. What Are We Nowadays Nowadays, Pegões is a modern and competitive winery recognised both in the domestic and international markets. Pegões wines have been distinguished with several awards at the most important international wine contests. With a vineyards area of 2.200 acres and an average annual grape production of about seven thousands tons, 74 per cent red and 26 per cent white. The red varities are: Castelão (Periquita) 94 per cent and Touriga Nacional, Aragonês and Cabernet Sauvignon amongst others.
