Quinta do Quetzal

Quinta do Quetzal is set in the heart of the Alentejo region on the rich slopes of Vidigueira. It is close to the oldest known Roman winery in Portugal and Spain. The microclimate and our hills make it the perfect location for a unique terroir. Here the grapes grow on soil rich in Schist, our local mineral stone. The focus is on the limited production of concentrated and top quality grapes in order to create a wine that expresses the character of the surroundings. Our modern winery preserves both Roman and ancient Alentejo winemaking traditions and techniques. The grapes are inserted on top of the Adega and end up as fine wines in our wine cellars, helped purely naturally by gravity. The cellars are deep underground to create a natural, cool temperature where the wines can age gradually.

To complete the Quetzal experience we opened a new building with a restaurant, shop and art centre. The building is partly covered with Schist. The building both stands out and fits into its surroundings seamlessly. The surrounding space has been designed to incorporate natural local plants in order to maximize the experience of the natural habitat of the Alentejo.

Cees and Inge de Bruin are collectors and patrons of contemporary art. They, together with their family, have had a warm relationship with Portugal for more than 40 years. Through Quinta do Quetzal they hope to share their passion for Portuguese culture, nature, food, and wine with others. Every year, in collaboration with their daughter, Aveline de Bruin, they create a new exhibition on the estate. Their own collection and connections in the art world will be a starting point for each exhibition.
