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.
