Founded in 1920, Casa Ermelinda Freitas is one of Portugal’s most renowned family-run wineries. Led by fourth-generation proprietor Leonor Freitas (who has been honored by the government for her service to the wine industry), the estate has won literally hundreds of major awards and 90+ point scores for its wines. And they make some of our customers’ absolute favorites, too.

Working closely with head winemaker Jaime Quendera, Leonor crafted Vinha do Fava to celebrate the estate’s 100+ year legacy. As you’d expect, they put great care and attention into every stage of the winemaking process. They selected the grape varieties on which the estate was founded—Castelão from their oldest vineyards, Touriga Nacional grown in their prized Fava vineyard and Alicante Bouschet, which is loved for its deep, dark charm.

As the finishing touch, Jaime treated the wine to eight months in fine French and American oak barrels. His and Leonor’s efforts were well rewarded. Last vintage, the Reserva won a ‘Best Wine From Portugal’ trophy and gold medal at the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Competition. And the 2021 release is every bit as impressive (and sure to earn its own awards soon!).

Look forward to intense black cherry and plum flavors, plus sweet spice notes from the barrel aging. Rich and textured, with a round, juicy structure, this luscious Reserva is ready to impress on your dinner table—especially if you’re serving roasted pork or hearty stews.

Order your share today and raise a glass to Casa Ermelinda Freitas’ 100+ years of winemaking excellence.
