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. This fresh and vibrant Tinto packs some real fruit punch. Plum compote, red liquorice and black cherry fill out its juicy palate. An easy drinker but with some flesh and personality.

Robin says "Cortes de Cima produce a delicious array of wines that tick lots of boxes at varying price points. Their Courela Tinto is their "entry-level" red that was designed to please."
