Family owned Herdade do Mouchão, is an estate now owned by the sixth generation of a British-Portuguese family, based in the Alentejo region of Portugal. In a country steeped in winemaking history, the name Mouchão is synonymous with wines of distinction. The family-owned estate has been producing wine for over a hundred years and maintains the traditions established in 1901 when the new winery was built. The distinctive character of Mouchão wines derives from three principal characteristics: the Alicante Bouschet grape, the specific terroir and adherence to traditional winemaking methods. At Mouchão grapes are hand-picked, foot trodden in marble cement lined lagares and the wine aged in five thousand litre wooden vats. Mouchão wines are renowned for their longevity, maturing subtly as they age.

This is a dry and fresh Rosé produced from a blend of the premium Douro grape varieties, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional. It has a delicate pink colour obtained by free run juice. Modern winemaking retains aromas of fresh wild berries and pomegranate. It is deliciously crisp and refreshing and is best served chilled as an appetizer or with salads, fish and shellfish.



A dry classic French “blanc de noir” style made from a free-run juice blend of shiraz and merlot. Harvested earlier to retain fresher acids and treated very reductively in the cellar, this helps to capture the primary fruit flavours of strawberry coulis & dried cranberries with delicate spiciness. Excellent with flash-fried prawns and red-chilli vinaigrette.



This delicate pale pink rosé offers a beautiful mineral freshness, revealing gentle aromas of citrus, red fruits and flowers. A delectable wine best served at 10°C.This fresh and elegant rosé can be enjoyed by itself. This is also a terrific wine to have along with food, easy pairing with Mediterranean dishes (tartare, ceviche, ratatouille…) as well as exotic foods.
