The winery at Quinta das Amendoeiras is new, indeed, but it is still old, as a result of the refurbishment of a centenary building.

The project, signed by architect Paulo Viana, preserved the old schist and granite walls and two original lagares. Another two were removed to make room for more modern equipment.

Old granite lagares and modern stainless steel vats with must pumps and temperature control co-exist in that room and illustrate the interaction taking place between tradition and technology at Quinta das Amendoeiras.
