Adega de Colares

Adega Regional de Colares

Since 1931The oldest cooperative cellar in Portugal!

Since 1931, the main purpose of this cooperative is to perform, by the appropriate means and techniques, the vinification of grapes from the farms of its members, thus performing an important social function, concerning the agricultural sector of the municipality of Sintra. The winery is very close to the associates by providing technical assistance to the wine growers and support to their activity. With such an ancient tradition and remarkable typicity, vineyards and wines of the Colares region are a true living museum and an ex-libris of the same. Their problems and their survival transcend the mere scope of the economy and become a cultural issue. Our main goal is the protection and preservation of the Colares Wine Culture.

Since 1931The oldest cooperative cellar in Portugal!

We understand the importance of protecting and preserving the Colares wine culture, its unique varieties and original viticulture methods. The ARColares philosophy rests on the imperative to ‘respect the Colares terroir’ and continue the tradition of our ancestors.

We produce temperamental wine from the Old World! Rediscover Colares!
