A estate full of history

In the Lencastre family since the 12th century, Casa de Vila Nova expanded and grew until the 20th century from its legendary tower in blocks successively built and restored. In the 1970s and 1980s, the owner Luís Lencastre starts out as a vinho verde producer. In 1986, the vineyards were totally reconverted and a new investment on machinery, equipment and agriculture resources were done.

In 1993, to develop and enhance the wine and some real estate activities, the company Sociedade Agrícola e Imobiliária da Casa de Vila Nova, Lda was formed, undertaking Casa de Vila Nova whole business. For the first time, in 2003, the grapes from Casa de Vila Nova vineyards were used in the production of vinho verde though keeping a residual sale of grape bulk. From then on, several vinho verde brands from Casa de Vila Nova were placed in the modern distribution and most recently in selected restaurants and hotels. Casa de Vila Nova is a company that is still in the family and has as business partners the brothers Bernardo, Luísa, Sofia and Filipe.

Vineyards cared for in every detail

Casa de Vila Nova is located in the sub region of Sousa, the Vinho Verde Demarcated Region. Known as the region of Entre-Douro-e-Minho, in the North of Portugal, the vinho verde lands are exposed to the Atlantic Ocean winds and influence. Soils, microclimate, grape varieties and the unique characteristics of the wine culture, distinguish it from all other wine regions of the world.

Casa de Vila Nova shares the region characteristics, thus granting a quality production of vinho verde and a product of origin. For that, it relies on the production of its vineyards and subject to rigorous selection and a high quality control, also on the grapes from other producers in the region. We seek for our wines to have a minimalist intervention in the cellar, as we believe that good wines are made in the vineyard where we take care of every detail, harvest after harvest.
