Quinta da Ribeirinha

we are a family run winery located in the Tejo region. Our philosophy: Making the best what nature has presented us to give life to memorable wines.

About the winery
Inserted in the Ribatejo wine region, Quinta da Ribeirinha is located in the village of Póvoa de Santarém and consists of 95 hectares, of which 60 hectares are vineyards, this being its main activity. In a region with great gastronomic and cultural traditions, wine tourism is a way to promote and enhance the region's rich heritage. In this way, Quinta da Ribeirinha intends that each visitor, in addition to "tasting" the wines, feel involved in their culture, appreciate the landscape and learn a little about their production process. Our vineyards are planted on clay-limestone soil, dry Mediterranean climate and mostly exposed to the South. We combine innovation and technology with the experience and knowledge transmitted over generations. The vines grow on integrated production system in which the use of chemicals is minimal, saving the environment and the human health.

History & Geography
The passion for wine, and more than that, the constant dedication to the wine business has been going through the Cândido family for several generations. Jose Cândido, the patriarch of the family has developed from an early age his occupation as farmer, and the wine was his main source of income. Later, in 1995, José Cândido's activity had a new development; his son, Joaquim Cândido, neurologist, a lover for the vines and winemaking decided to support his Father's activity, continuing with the planting of new areas of vineyards, building the farm's own wine cellar and following the technological evolution, he decided to apply scientific methods in the production process. Shortly after, his daughter Mariana and son Rui, an economist and a biochemist completed the board of the directors of the company.
