A century year old story

"I remember being six years old, happily running through the old cellar trying to keep up with my father! I am 43 today, and it still feels incredibly the same :)" - Luís

our history

the kiss winery

With more than a century of history and tradition and 40 acres of vineyard and olive trees, Quinta do Beijo (directly translated to "The Kiss Winery") was born from the ancient “Calvário warehouses”, owned by the  family for more than 100 years.

In 2015 our winery was fully renewed, rebranded and refreshed but all our traditional and historical values have been preserved. It was with new family energy that we have rebranded our quality wines and olive oil and opened our winery to the public. 

we're a family business

our team, our family

Before a company, we are a family, a family with a dream built with hard work, effort, dedication, and lots of love.

João Monteiro

the heart

João "John" is the responsible for Quinta do Beijo

He manages all our operations, including the touristic activities that we offer.  

He is fully dedicated to the business and he masters the art of welcoming people to our home. He is a great guide, with fantastic personal and communication skills and he loves to play and to laugh with all our visitors, while teaching and showing our history and tradition. 

Who knows our João will always want to come back! 

Miguel Monteiro

the soul

Mr. Monteiro, as he is known in the region is the family Patriarch. 

He carefully manages all the wine production of Quinta do Beijo, as well as the management of all the acres of vineyard, including the winery operational control. 

He inherited the winery from our grandfather, Luíz de Castro Monteiro, and after producing fantastic Port wines during several decades, he challenged his wife and sons to create a new brand in the Portuguese market, our Quinta do Beijo.  

As a result of his work, conviction, dedication and love, Quinta do Beijo was born and has become in what it is today.
