Casa Agrícola HMR, the company originally named CADE – Companhia Agrícola de Desenvolvimento SA. Dr. Carmona e Costa was responsible for the purchase of Herdade Monte da Ribeira in 1987. The Herdade is located in Marmelar, Vidigueira (Alentejo, Portugal), a location with a centuries-old winemaking tradition dating back to Roman times and later pursued by the Knights Templar.

It was the will to continue this fine tradition, as well as an intense confidence in the richness of its soils that led to the decision of making winemaking the main activity of the Herdade. CADE changed its name to Casa Agrícola HMR, SA in 2011. A good Alentejano will always give you more than you’ve asked for!
