Factor XPTO: A different Alentejo!
Luísa Amorim discovered the Alentejo at an early age – where the greens and browns of the cork oak trees would blend with the holm oaks and olive trees. It felt like an immense and seemingly infinite territory, as she stayed in the region before heading south, for her summer holidays in the Algarve.
In addition to cork, which plays a central role in her family universe, Luisa soon discovered that wine is one of her biggest passions.
She later began to manage the Quinta Nova of Nossa Senhora do Carmo estate in the Douro and the Taboadella estate in the Dão region.
Her family originally acquired the Herdade Aldeia de Cima estate in 1994.
In 2017, she decided to rebuild the small village and plant a vineyard in the Serra do Mendro, which soon became a life project.
