The connection of the Grave family to Quinta de São José de Peramanca dates back to the early twentieth century. It was in 1913 that João Grave’s great-grandfather acquired these lands and since then this property has been the center of the Agricultural House of the last four generations of this family, traditionally linked to agriculture and cattle raising.
The current owner João Grave, takes control of Quinta de São José de Peramanca, having decided from the outset to bet on wine production as a way to make the property more profitable.
Since 2003, about 15.5 hectares of vineyards are planted in Quinta de São José de Peramanca, where Aragonez, Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Sauvignon, Alfrocheiro, Alicante Bouschet, Syrah, Arinto, Verdelho, and Alvarinho varieties stand out.
