The Oddbins Take

It feels like this was destined to become an Oddbins wine. In 1988 a sailboat carrying a Dane and an American arrived in Portugal. These two set up camp, ignored local advice, threw the rule book out of the window and made this chunky red wine out of about a billion grape varieties. Although the label may only attract those with a penchant for earthenware, we have every confidence that the award winning contents will win many supporters. We are extremely proud to introduce: Cortes de Cima.

In 1988 a Danish-American couple sailed out to find a place to start a family and plant a vineyard... and thus begins the story of Cortes de Cima Family Vineyards, one of Alentejo's leading wineries.
