Quinta Brejinho

Quinta Brejinho

from the coast

The land surrounding the Quinta is very typical of the Comporta area. Flanked by a dense forest of stone pines, where wild animals roam freely, Quinta Brejinho da Costa, far from noise and pollution, is a true reserve of flora and fauna that is carefully protected. In winter, there are thousands of wild pigeons that live here, and it is not surprising to see a hare, a family of wild boars, a few badgers and the common genet roaming freely in the forest.

The Quinta's vineyards, dedicated to the production of unique wines, thrive in an exceptional environment, preserving the enormous ecological biodiversity.

Brejinho da Costa spirits are widely recognized for their elegance, finesse, roundness, persistent finish and extraordinary

aromatic complexity. They are highly feminine, devoid of aggression and deliciously balanced. They develop endless aromas of fresh fruit, candied fruit, spice, tobacco, cocoa, vanilla, walnut, cream, toasted brioche and other notes.

The surface layer of soil that characterizes Quinta Brejinho da Costa is light and acidic.

It is composed of fine sand quartz sand and small amounts of iron hydroxide and marine sediments known as “sables fauves”. It is a very deep soil, originating from an Oligocene aquifer system that consists of marine limestone and is covered by Miocene sedimentation of forest origin that had two marine stages, the Aquitanian episode and the Helvetic episode, forming new widely drained limestone deposits. This limestone is covered by sandy clay formations from the late Miocene and Pliocene, called “sables-fauves”. There are several thicknesses of these sands in the Quinta. They are permeable and drained by several springs that flow from the Serra de Grândola towards the sea.
