The purchase of Casa Agricola José de Sousa Rosado Fernandes in 1986 saw a long-held dream become reality for José Maria da Fonseca: to produce Alentejo’s wine using traditional winemaking methods from a historic and prestigious estate. The property won on both counts, having produced wine since 1878 and having one absolutely legendary vintage - José de Sousa 1940. Montado was first produced in from the 1991 harvest and has kept to the original blend ever since.
