More info

Alexandre de Almeida, founder of the oldest hotel chain in Portugal with the same name, started producing Bussaco Wines in 1917 when he realised what the Hotel Winery concept meant after many visits to European hotels including those on the French “Côte D’Azure”. This gave him the idea to open his own winery at the Bussaco Palace, starting to produce varieties that would come to be known as the glorious “Bussaco wines”.

In the early 20th century, one of the most interesting pages on Portuguese wine was created, the wine that was to become a much envied icon but which was always intentionally kept out of the limelight. Its creator, Alexandre de Almeida, adopted the concept of linking luxury hotels to a winery with their own wine. If we look back, ever since the first harvests we realised the importance of this icon that was served to kings, queens and heads of state, as proven by menus, proudly kept at the Hotel Palace Bussaco. Bussaco wines were just that: objects of culture limited to very restricted circles, the elite. Their fantastic and noble labels still bear the symbol of their nobility to this day and age.

The Bussaco wines were and still are always produced in the same way using the same methods as in the past. The fact that the grapes come from the Dão and Bairrada regions guarantee a wonderful wine nobly developed in the bottle. These wines ferment and age in French oak barrels for 12 months. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels.
Tasting Notes

The red is an intense wine that reflects the elegance of the Touriga Nacional from the Dão region and the freshness and vigour of the Baga from Bairrada. With black fruit aroma, it is slightly rural and complex with a great ageing potential.

“Drinking a Bussaco wine is like travelling through time, savouring a glorious wine produced by Alexandre de Almeida, a visionary. All wine lovers should be offered this opportunity at least once in a lifetime.”
