At Vidigueira, Eng. António was one of the references in the wine business, first as a producer for the local Coop, and after at Herdade Grande, where he started to bottle his own wines under this label. He became one of the most significant producers in Alentejo. Not only with the way he showed the enormous potential of local and classical varieties (such as Antão Vaz, Roupeiro, Aragonez or Trincadeira), but also how he took a chance on experimenting with different grape varieties (Viosinho, Rabigato, Alvarinho, Sousão e Tinta Míuda) and the new approaches to all of them.
