Details

Ciconia Tinto Herdade de Sao Miguel. Seemingly constantly picking up gongs for brilliant value for money, Ciconia Tinto combines approachability with Alentejo's most likeable features of rich, soft fruit, with a bit of roast and dried fruit notes. Un-oaked, and doesn't need or want for it. Ciconia, for the benefit of non-twitchers, is the Latin genus for the stork. And Ciconia's Ciconia is the white stork, which so likes to breed in this region.

The Herdade was acquired by Alexandre Relvas of Casa Relvas in 1997, and he runs the estate with renowned consultant Luis Duarte. It is situated in the municipality of Redondo, covering a sprawling 175hectares of total area, of which 35 are planted with vines on loam soils. 97 of the remaining hectares contain cork trees, planted between 1998 and 1999, and the rest of the estate is dedicated to the breeding and conservation of local species in extinction such as the 'Mirandela' donkey and the 'Garrano' horses of Gerês, that in the old times were great agriculture tools and now are in extinction due to the take over of automation in agriculture. There is some excellent winemaking taking place here, using traditional grape varieites and methods.
