J Portugal Ramos has become perhaps THE poster boy of Alentejo wineries. He evidently has a talent for marketing. The winery is located on a hill near the town of Estremoz. It is probably one of the bigger producers in Alentejo. Some of the wine making technology is decidedly traditional, e.g. the use of stone lagares for treading the grapes (although we're not sure how much they are actually used). They also have many modern stainless steel fermentation vats, roto-fermenters for an efficient extraction, oak fermentation vats, and a big barrel aging cellar of maturing the wines in wood. They have been extremely successful on the Swedish market, partially thanks to an aggressive pricing strategy for the wines on that market.
