Herdade de Sao Miguel is a winery located in Portugal's Alentejo wine region to the east of Lisbon. It is in the Redondo area close to the historic town of Evora. Since 1997 Herdade de São Miguel is owned by Alexandre Relvas.
The Sao Miguel farm covers some 175 hectares 35 of which are planted with vines. There are also cows and sheep, as well as cork and olive trees on the farm.
The vineyard plantings are quite recent: the vines were planted between 2001 and 2003. The vineyards are planted with a variety of mainly local traditional grape varieties. For the red wines there are e.g. alicante bouschet, aragones, castelao and touriga franca, but also the international grape varieties cabernet sauvignon and syrah. For the white wines they have planted antao vaz, arinto, avesso, enruzado and several other varieties.
The winery and wine cellar is very modern. It was built in 2003 and is equipped with the latest vinification technology: stainless steel vats, pneumatic press etc, but also traditional barrels.
Herdade Sao Miguel makes a range of wines under the names of Sao Miguel, Sao Miguel Descbridores, Montinho SM, Ciconia, Missoes, and a "Special Edition".
