About the winery

After almost two decades of experience producing the Talha Wine, in 2018 Honrado Vineyards started its most recent project, the Winery–Museu Cella Vinaria Antiqua. The Winery–Museum was born with the motivation to preserve, honor and offer to the community and the World the best of Talha Wine. Those who visit us will find an historical atmosphere, that takes us back to Roman times, when the first experiments with grapes in clay pots were made and the first wines were born. In what regards to the Museum, the building is a space where visitors are received at events, guided tours and wine tasting experiences.

An unique space that tells thousands of years of story and brings together the best of Alentejo's history, culture and tradition.

History & Geography

The Wine produced by Honrado Vineyards is the result of a family project between father and son who have a range of very different skills from one another, but, in the end they complement each other. Born in a familiy from Vila de Frades, which had the wine in their blood and history, The Father, António, learned how to produce wine in clay pots from his great dad-uncle, when he was still a very young man. Using as main working tools the ancestral knowledge left by the Romans, and the love for the Alentejo's culture, António began to sell the Talha Wine, produced by himself, in bulk at his typical food Restaurant País das Uvas, which he founded in the early 2000s together with his wife Jacinta.

Everything worked like this until 2016, when his son, Ruben, graduated in Economics and a lover of marketing with a creative and entrepreneurial spirit, returns to his origins after a personal journey that allowed him to know and explore several cultures around the world, to lead the project and support his father in his dream of taking Talha Wine beyond the borders of Vila de Frades.

The ambition and restlessness mindset of both father and son, along with their desire to show the best of Alentejo to the rest the world, led them to build their own wine brand, and to create Honrado Vineyards - a family business focused on the production of natural Talha Wines, enriched by the knowledge passed down through three generations of the Honrado family, which represents the purest values ​​of the traditional Talha Wine.
