History & Geography
The history of Quinta do Piloto spans four generations of a family that grew up linked to the history of Palmela over a century. At the beginning of the century, in 1900, Humberto da Silva Cardoso left for Brazil in search of his fortune. But he returned shortly after, as he had left. In Palmela, he married Adelaide Carvalho Cardoso, daughter of an illustrious family of winery owners. In recent years, Filipe Cardoso has taken the extensive area of ​​old vines and used the family experience to select extraordinary wines under the Piloto brands, opposed to selling the grapes. The current Quinta do Piloto project was born in 2008, to make these special wines known. Dedicated to bottling quality wines in small quantities, Quinta do Piloto is the culmination of a history that spans four generations dedicated to Palmela. A secret finally revealed.
