About the winery
Ribafreixo Wines is a winery project comprised by the Moinho Branco Estate, with its sizeable 114 ha in Vidigueira, a region with a long-standing winemaking tradition. Our winemaker Paulo Laureano – renowned for his “art in crafting wines of excellence” – is one of the fundamental drivers in our growing success and recognition. The new Winery with 4000sqm had its first harvest in 2012, standing out with its modern lines integrated in the landscape of Vidigueira and packed with the latest technology, with a capacity to produce up to 1 000,000 bottles. Its bioclimatic design, energy efficiency and recycling systems use natural light and gravity force, in a variety of operations. Wine Tourism was one of the objectives when planning the new infrastructure, with a Wine Shop, a typical regional Restaurant and Tasting areas – for tourist activities. With picture framed views of our vineyard, the winery has a wonderful setting to satisfy the most demanding visitor.

History & Geography
Every place has something different. But the decision to make something out of it, coupled with the necessary know-how, can give the land something unique. Knowing this, Ribafreixo Wines has been designing Herdade do Moinho Branco, at the gateway to the town of Vidigueira, since 2007. Its 282 acres are the result of a collection of abandoned agricultural plots from the region’s declining population and reduced agricultural profits. The name Moinho Branco, or “White Mill”, preserves the building’s original name among local residents who, in bygone days, used the nearby stream to mill the grains they produced. Meanwhile, the new owners’ work is transforming a once arid landscape into fertile lands with 282 acres of vineyard. This arduous task comes from the desire to produce superior wines on this land – specifically white wines – to sell in the international market.
