A Quinta do Piloto está situada na Serra do Louro em Palmela e abrange 300 hectares de vinhas nos melhores terroirs da região. Fundada por Humberto Cardoso no início do século XX, chegou a ser dos maiores produtores de Portugal, com cerca de 500 hectares de vinhas, para venda a granel.

Ao longo de quatro gerações a família Cardoso conservou as adegas e herdades originais, incluindo 130 hectares de vinhas velhas. E o sonho de engarrafar os seus próprios vinhos. Os vinhos Quinta do Piloto representam apenas os lotes excecionais destas extensas vinhas de família.

O primeiro vinho com a marca Quinta do Piloto foi o Piloto Collection Roxo, lançado em 2013 e premiado pelo Decanter World Wine Awards e International Wine Challenge nesse mesmo ano.

Quinta do Piloto is located in Serra do Louro in Palmela, covering 300 hectares of vineyards on the best terroirs of the region. Founded by Humberto Cardoso in the early twentieth century, it was once one of the largest winemakers of Portugal, with about 500 hectares of vineyards for bulk sale.

For four generations, the Cardoso family retained the original wineries and farms, including 130 hectares of old vines, and the dream of bottling the best of it. Today Quinta do Piloto wines represent only the exceptional batch of these extensive family vineyards.

The first Quinta do Piloto's wine was the Piloto Collection Roxo, released in 2013, awarded in the Decanter World Wine Awards and International Wine Challenge that same year.

  • It was amazing. Such a great winery with delicious wines! Highly recommended. It's also very close to Lisbon, so if you want to try a winery closeby, it would be a great choice. There's three red wines and three white wines to sample, along with slices of bread, chorizo, mercatel jam, olive oil (which was sooo different from what we have in Canada and so tasty) and a cheese to share with your party.
  • What a wonderful experience: the landscape, the winery itself, the lovely tour guide Helena who explained everything to us. We were able to have a look at the whole wine making process at Quinta do Piloto. And then the wine tastings, of course: Portugal is one of the best wine producing countries in the world, and at Quinta do Piloto, you have to try their roxo grape (you will only find it there!), the Moscatel of course, and the red wines. And 6 wines plus the tour you may have for EUR 7.5 only!
