Born in 2011 in Dão, what would today be one of the most recognized and prestigious wine companies in the region. Carlos Lucas, a visionary, irreverent and tenacious, raises Magnum Vinhos, presenting to the country and the world, wines of excellence, authentic and expressive.

The company is located in the parish of Oliveira do Conde, in the Carregal do Sal county, in Viseu. The village was, in the past, a very old and prosperous county. It had a charter from Dom Dinis, in 1286, and a new charter from Dom Manuel, on December 20, 1516. It was the seat of the Counts of Sortelha, then passed on to the Counts of Vila Nova de Portimão and Marqueses de Abrantes.

Some remnants have reached our days, and you can still see some manor houses, the pillory and the Mother Church.

Quinta do Ribeiro Santo

Quinta do Ribeiro Santo was an ancient property of a local priest. It was surrounded by a stream where water flowed all year round, even during very dry years, so it was named Quinta do Ribeiro Santo, which means "Holly River Estate".

It was purchased by the family of Carlos Lucas in 1994. He immediatly planted his own vineyard and started to bottle his first signature wine in 2000.

 

The vineyard stands on the traditional grape varieties, typical of the region, Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Tinto Cão and Encruzado, planted in granitic poor soils, with rocky schist outcrops.

Quinta de Santa Maria 0
Quinta de Santa Maria

Quinta de Santa Maria has a magnificent view on the Serra da Estrela

 

This property is located in Cabanas de Viriato, Carregal do Sal municipality. With history recorded since the 19th century. XIII, Cabanas de Viriato is the birthplace of Aristides de Sousa Mendes, whose house is one of the main reasons for the attraction of this well-preserved village in its granite stone dwellings.

 

Granite with some sand is also the poor and austere soil of Quinta de Santa Maria. The high wall that completely surrounds it attests to the importance it once reached as an agricultural property and the stunning view of the Serra da Estrela complements the picture.

Carlos Lucas is well aware of the potential of the 10 hectares of vineyards that existed there, since he was responsible for this plantation, in 2001, as part of his previous project. When the property was acquired by him in 2018, the vines were abandoned a few years ago, so they had to be rebuilt and restored with all the care and attention.

Surrounded by olive trees and forest patches, the grapes are 30% white and 70% red, with the classic Dão varieties: Encruzado, Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Jaen and Tinto Cão. In the very near future, the white grape component will be strengthened with the planting of more Encruzado in the open area, but always leaving the patches of wild pine trees to promote biodiversity and keep the landscape unchanged.

 

Quinta de Santa Maria also boasts the old wine cellar and the main house, both of which will be the object of recovery in order to develop wine tourism on the property. The grapes are made in the modern winemaking center of Magnum-Carlos Lucas Vinhos, at Quinta do Ribeiro Santo, in Carregal do Sal.

Quinta das Herédias

Quinta das Herédias is one of the oldest and most historic agricultural properties in the Douro, with roots in the 12th century.

 

Located on the left bank of Távora, more specifically in the town of Granjinha, in the municipality of Tabuaço, the estate was part of the heritage of the monastery of S. Pedro das Águias, a place of gathering for the Cistercian monks from Burgundy who led the production of wine in all of medieval Europe.

 

The property has maintained its wine and agricultural activity uninterruptedly for centuries, as evidenced by the old cellar with three perfectly operational granite presses and the Casa do Azeite, as well as stables, wood oven and warehouse.

 

Purchased by Magnum-Carlos Lucas Vinhos in 2019, Quinta das Herédias spans a total of 109 hectares, including 30 hectares of vineyards and 35 hectares of olive groves, the rest being occupied by woodland, walnut, holm oak, oak, strawberry trees, hazel and juniper. Orange, almond, cherry and fig trees are also part of the landscape.

The vineyard of the farm, planted between 400 and 600 meters of altitude, in schist soil with granitic outcrops, has different ages, ranging from plots with twenty years old, to plots based on more than centennial strains, with different mixed varieties.

 

In general, the red grapes Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Tinta Amarela predominate and white Viosinho, Rabigato, Gouveio and Arinto. In the traditional olive grove, Cobrançosa, Galega and Verdeal are the dominant varieties.

 

Magnum-Carlos Lucas Vinhos honors the glorious past of Quinta das Herédias, engaging in the production of Douro, Porto and olive oil of excellence, and transporting to that location the environmental and sustainability concerns that characterize the company's agricultural model.

 

Wine tourism is one of the pillars of the property, counting with the scenic beauty of the Távora valley, the small chapel and the main house of the farm. The latter, as well as the caretakers' houses, were remodeled with local materials (wood, shale and granite) and transformed into a rural tourism unit with 10 rooms, swimming pool, garden and terrace.

In Alentejo Magnum Vinhos produce Maria Mora and Flor de Maio wines originated from vineyards with traditional grape varieties planted in plain, sandy soil. 

Mora is the plain, Alentejo, eyes to look, to listen to, to touch, to feel... The dehesa that flows, the plain that escapes, water that drills. Mora is also a place of vineyards and wines. In Mora Trincadeira, Aragonez, Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, Syrah e Cabernet Sauvignon are pontificated.

 

Mora requires the delay in order the vineyard of traditional plantation in sandy soil could give us time to collect previous lessons and unite them with our revrence providing modern and wise profile. These are the wines that we are producing here and that we are calling Maria Mora and Flor de Maio.
