History & Geography
In 1998, Commendator José Berardo became the main shareholder and continued the company's mission, investing in planting new vineyards, modernizing wineries and acquiring new properties, and started a partnership with the Lafitte Rothschild Group in Quinta do Carmo. In 2007 Bacalhôa became the largest shareholder in the Aliança Vinhos de Portugal, one of the most prestigious producers in the categories of high quality sparkling wines, spirits and table wines. The following year, the company bought Quinta do Carmo, thus increasing to 1200 ha of vineyards in the group. Bacalhôa has wineries in the most important regions of Portugal: Alentejo, Península de Setúbal (Azeitão), Lisboa, Bairrada, Dão and Douro.
