History

In memory of Américo Seabra

Welcome to Casa Américo

Noble wines from the Dão region

The brand “Casa Américo” was established by the hands of Américo Seabra, father, who had the dream of producing wine in his homeland, Vila Nova de Tazem. This dream has come to fruition by the work and dedication of his sons, who recovered the property of the 18th century and created the suitable infrastructures to produce wines of excellence.

Today we have more than 100ha of vineyards, spread over 17 properties, with the oldest vine dating back to over 100 years old. These vineyards are planted in poor granite soils, with the noble grape varieties of the region. Located at 500-600m altitude, on the slopes of Portugal’s highest mountain, Serra da Estrela, which is considered one of the most important terroirs of the Dão region. In the cellar we only work with indigenous varietals, showing the upmost respect to each of them, so they can truly express their unique terroir and their high elevation home, showing elegance and balance.
