The Casal 136 brand is born from the concept of offering a range of high quality Reserve wines, comfortably packed in a 3L Bag in Box. Casal 136, where our vineyard is located, is one of the 207 farming couples existing in the former Pegões Agricultural Colony established in the 1950’s. Herdade de Pegões was at that time partitioned into agricultural plots (casais) divided into three nuclei. These “casais” were occupied by settlers who, with their families, sought their livelihood in agriculture, and to whom they were allocated close to 18 hectares of vacant land for agricultural exploitation on a provisional basis and for a period of three to five years. If the goals were attained, during this period, a permanent fruition of the land and the house was granted to the family.
