About the winery
The Adega 23 project was born from Manuela Carmona’s passion for the culture and history of wine-making – an interest that acted as the catalyst for her escape from her day job as an eye doctor. The region where she was born (Sarnadas de Rodão/Castelo Branco), with which she never lost contact, was the place she chose to plant this incredibly bold wine-making endeavor. Bold for its dimension, its modernity, and its originality, the estate's main building was designed by the Atelier RUA. This architecture firm erected a striking parallel piped building surrounded by a highly textured structure, with a magnificent golden coating.
Winner of many architectural awards, it is situated in the highest elevation of the 12 hectares of the estate, creating a striking contrast with the landscape, and presenting an incredible view for those who drive down the A23 highway, which cuts through the vineyard.
The interior of the building was just as carefully designed, firstly in order to accommodate the technical needs of the vinification and ageing processes, but also to offer a social area to warmly welcome visitors and host cultural events.
Just above the vineyards and the slopes, the panoramic veranda places the viewer directly into the unique location of this estate – embracing the distant mountains of the Serra de São Mamede in the region of Alto Alentejo to the Southeast, and, to the North, the Serra das Talhadas and, further on, the Serra da Estrela, in the Beira Interior.
