During the 12th century, the Cistercian monks inhabited the Convent of Santa Margarida de Aguiar and transmitted all their teachings to the local population about wine art. It is based on this knowledge that today the Adega produces its award-winning wines nationally and internationally.

As a matter of curiosity, in the X international competition of Prizes Wines Arribe the reserve Red Wine Castelo Rodrigues reached the first place and in the XIII Wine Contest of the interior border its White Wine reached the second place in the competition.

This is only possible through the 8 500 000 kg of grapes that arrive at the winery and which are later transformed into 6 500 000 liters of wine, of which 55% corresponds to white wine and 45% to red wine.

As for the grape varieties? White wines incorporate, mostly grape varieties such as: Siria and Malvasia Fina. Red wines have a greater variety of varieties: Marufo, Rufete, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz.

 

At Hotel da Montanha you can taste Castelo Rodrigo wines during your meal, thus taking advantage of the best of both worlds: a unique and traditional gastronomic experience and an excellent wine experience.
