Mouchão has been producing wine for over a hundred years and maintains the traditions established in 1901 when the winery was built. Mouchão is a household name in Portugal and one with rich, fascinating history. Thomas Reynolds, a Port wine merchant from England, settled in Porto in the mid-1800s. Three generations later his grandson, John Reynolds, set up shop in Alentejo working in the cork business. He bought quite a bit of land in Alentejo, one of which was the 900 hectares of Herdade de Mouchão. Along with cork farming, the family diversified their skills and winemaking began in the early 1900s. As a testament to the long winemaking history, you can see the years 1901 and 1904 written on the entrances of different wings of the winery.
