Casca Wines is distinguished by its reverence for and love of nature, always striving to source the greatest grapes and make the best wines.
Casca Wines is a project of oenologists and wine specialists who decided to create a high quality Portuguese wine brand. A project that only works with the best grapes and tries to renew Portugal’s unique culture in winemaking.
Casca Wines was launched in 2008, and its initial wines were produced in an 1808 cellar. As a tribute, and because they were founded in 2008, exactly 200 years later, they created the brand 1808 Portugal, which symbolizes the progress and continual challenges they face. It is a wine brand through which they have reiterated their ideals of ecosystem sustainability and gone even further, providing organic and vegan certification of practically all wines produced by their winemaking staff, and signed with the seal “evolutionary winemaker, Hélder Cunha,” their founder.
Monte Cascas is a winery that was created to go above and beyond. More than a farm, more than a region. It’s a brand dedicated to finding the best grapes of each variety from the most dedicated grape producers, with the goal of creating blended wines that represent each of Portugal’s DOC wine areas. As a result, they understand and respect the traditions of local producers as they travel across valleys and mountains from north to south of the country, producing the best wine with them, thereby ensuring their enology concept, the “expression of the terroir.”
