The Cork Oak Forest/        The Cork

The “Montados” that dominate the Alentejo landscape, have been created by man by opening and selecting species of the Mediterranean Forest, are maintained by grazing and agricultural practices under and between the trees.

It is a multifunctional system, agriculture-forestry and animal grazing.

The estates’s “Montados” are mainly of Cork Oaks, the tree from which you obtain Cork.

Cork is the main product from the “Cork Oak Montado” and is the natural stopper by excellence for the best still and sparkling wines. It is its commercial value that guaranties the sustainability and preserves these “Montados”.

However, under and between the trees exist yet other activities as extensive grazing and some crops.
