our history

the kiss winery

With more than a century of history and tradition and 12 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.

Now renewed, refreshed and with new energy, it has to offer great quality wines, a promising olive oil, all together with a new touristic offer based on our traditional winery.

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.
