Wine information
In 1988, A Danish-American couple, Hans and Carrie Jorgensen set out in a sailboat to find a place to start a family and plant vines. They came to Alentejo and they found “Cortes de Cima.” It was just a barren land and a few abandoned buildings. But Carrie, of Portuguese ancestry, said the landscape reminded her of California, her homeland. Hans, who was born in Denmark, fell in love with the Mediterranean sun. Their first wine was "born" in 1998 and the many successful vintages which followed as well as their pioneering spirit have put Cortes de Cima on the map. Their Courela Branco is the estate's "entry level" white and has lots of appeal, exactly how it should be. Moderately aromatic with zesty notes of green apple, fresh grapes and melon, its easy going, fresh personality will deliver much pleasure.

Robin says "Fresh white wines are not easy to produce in warm climates like southern Portugal, but Cortes de Cima seems to do it effortlessly. A fresh, pleasant wine that could easily be drunk on its own or accompany lighter fare."
