Cabriz Escolha review

Grandes Escolhas roadmap puts your stop at Quinta de Cabriz

The January edition of the magazine Grandes Escolhas elected our Quinta de Cabriz, in Carregal do Sal, as the third stop on its itinerary. This visit to our facilities took them to stroll through the gardens, get to know the educational vineyards, visit the winery, explore the cellars, see the shop, finishing the itinerary to visit the table of our restaurant, where they enjoyed the traditional cuisine of the Beiras, in full harmony with the Cabriz wines.

With a lot to know inside this quiet space, the highlight of the visit was the exploration of the cellars, a reserved place where thirty years of Cabriz history are gathered. The words of the magazine Grandes Escolhas reinforce the relevance and impact that this space imposes on all those who visit it:

We are nine meters below ground level and it is here that we find the most noble space in this complex: the memory room. The company has existed since 1990 and it is here that we have samples of all the wines that have been produced in the house, filed in “exhibitors” made with wooden boxes and identified by brand and year of harvest in handwritten messages on small slate plates. A wooden table, placed in the centre of the space, allows for wine tasting in this solemn and informal environment of cellar and museum.

In the end, Great Choices attributed a total of 17 points to the experience provided by the visit to our Quinta de Cabriz.

Originality (max. 2) – 1.5pts; Service (max. 2) – 2pts; Availability (max. 2) – 1.5pts; Wine tasting (max. 3) – 2.5pts; Direct sale (max. 3) – 2.5pts; Architecture (max. 3) – 2.5pts; Connection to culture (max. 3) – 2.5pts; Environment/Landscape (max. 2) – 2pts.


Cabriz runs at EDP Grande Prémio de Natal

Cabriz, once again joins EDP Grande Prémio de Natal 2019, one of the most emblematic races held during the Christmas season in Portugal. This athletics event takes place on December 15th in Lisbon and Cabriz will be one of its official sponsors.

Cabriz has been present at renowned events and is imbued with the same family spirit of sharing and conviviality that presides over the brand’s orientation. This positioning is also seeking to captivate new consumers, with an audience that is not traditionally a wine lover. In this sense, Cabriz will offer the participants a 37.5 cl bottle, together with the kit containing the t-shirts and back, showing the best of what is produced in the Dão lands.

In the coming days, Cabriz will develop hobbies in its social networks, through which entries will be made to the race that will cross some of the main arteries of the city of Lisbon. Starting in Benfica, the route continues through Campo Grande, following Avenida da República, passing through Campo Pequeno until Saldanha. From Saldanha follows Avenida Fontes Pereira de Melo to Marquês do Pombal and down Avenida da Liberdade to Restauradores, where the finish line is located.

To all participants, Cabriz wishes a good race!


Cabriz Tinto 2016 in The Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal.

The largest newspaper in the United States (in circulation), released last October 24, an article on one of the products that we know best, wine. And our Cabriz Colheita Selecionada Tinto 2016 marked its presence.

Entitled “The 5 wines we should be drinking more of“, the American periodical puts its focus on five wine brands: Trimbach Riesling, 2016 Cabriz, 2018 Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc, Champalou Brut Nonvintage and 2014 Woodlands ‘Margaret’Margaret River.

According to The Wall Street Journal, these five wine brands are not on the radar of mainstream wine for the average American. Despite their high quality, they do not receive the attention and respect they deserve, essentially due to lack of knowledge of their brands and their production regions.

Some wines simply don’t get the attention and respect they deserve.” – Lettie Teague

The article mentions that are many Americans who know the Port wine, some of these will even know the existence of the slopes of the Douro region where it is produced, however, for the vast majority of Americans, the area of Dão will still be quite unknown. And this lack of knowledge leads them to giving privilege to more expensive wines with lower quality than we achieve in the Dão valleys.

The lands of the Dão are very generous for the production of wine, marking in a characteristic way, the wealth and quality of the wine produced here. The arrival of international recognition for the product we make with such dedication is long overdue, but despite being “hidden” between the various DOC regions of Portugal, we began to attract the attention of very important wine markets, as will be the case of the American market.

“2016 Cabriz ($6.50), a red Dão wine that´s fruity, fun, easy to drink and very cheap.” – Lettie Teague

Our deepest thanks to Lettie Teague and The Wall Street Journal for their recognition of our Cabriz Colheita Selecionada Tinto 2016.
