The Campilho family has extensive farming interests in the Ribatejo, and wine is just a part of their business. Diogo is increasingly responsible for the agricultural side of the business, and with his colleague Pietro, is concentrating more of on wine production while his father Manuel oversees the rest of their enterprises.

Diogo has polished his winemaking skills during various harvest stints in Australia's Hunter Valley and has recently embarked on the Master of Wine course. The result is a range of wines which are recognisably Portuguese, but are very approachable to palates which have not grown up with the sometimes rustic traditional styles. This philosophy is reflected in the presentation of the wines, where many of the labels have been redesigned to give a smart new look.

This red has a juicy ripeness with a touch of oak spice. Really easy drinking and very popular!
