Cliff Richard’s vineyard was bought by businessman Joaquim Pires, who wants to make Algarve wines known all over the world.
Joaquim Pires is eager to produce good wine in Portugal, so he bought Quinta do Miradouro and Adega do Cantor from Cliff Richard, employing existing employees and also bringing back those who left the previous year.
“I have always dreamed of making wine. My father is from Guarda, but I decided to buy a vineyard in the south and make the best Portuguese rosé wine,” he said. Portuguese News.
Moreover, the businessman has already used his design skills to draw bottles that he assured me we had never seen before. “I want people abroad to know that we in southern Portugal also have good wine. They think the Algarve only has oranges,” he said.
Projects for the future
Adega do Cantor’s wine, which is vegan because it does not involve any animal products in the whole process, has been recognized more than once as a wine of excellence.
Currently there is a white wine which has been awarded in Germany and also a very popular red wine which has been awarded in the Algarve. They also have a sparkling wine, which is not very common in the region. While he wants to have a diverse wine selection, the focus will be on rosé wine, “I want to have the best rosé wine, not just for a year, but for 10 years in a row.”
For the future, Joaquim Pires has construction projects for the vineyard. One of them is to create a charming boutique hotel above the vineyards.
