Adega Cooperativa de Borba is a co-operative winery in the Alentejo region in Portugal, east of Lisbon. It was founded in 1955 at a time when few people outside the region had heard of Alentejo wines. Today the Alentejo wine region has become one of the best known wine producing areas in Portugal, no doubt helped by the closeness to Lisbon.
The winery is impressive in size and has in recent years invested heavily to create a modern and well equipped winery. If you visit their facility you will see both the latest vinification equipment an traditional cellar techniques with e.g. old wooden vats and barrels.
The vineyard extend over some 2000 hectares planted with both red and white grape vines. They are planted primarily with traditional varieties, such as aragonez, trincadeira preta, castelao and alicante bouschet for the red wines, and roupeiro, rabo de ovelha, arinto, and antao vaz for the white wines.
They make a wide range of wines from every-day drinking wines to premium cuvees.
