Adega Cooperativa de São Mamede da Ventosa, CRL

11/01/2019 Adega Cooperativa de São Mamede da Ventosa, CRL is one of the largest cooperative wineries of Portugal.

Adega Cooperativa de São Mamede da Ventosa, CRL was constituted on January 19, 1956. It began its operation on the premises of the National Wine Board (now called the Vine and Wine Institute), located in the Locusts, with about 200 members.

Adega Cooperativa De Sao Mamede da Ventosa

In 1972, it moved to new facilities at Arneiros, due to the need for a larger space that responded to the institution's growth, namely in terms of associates and consequent quantity of transformed grapes. These new facilities were successively expanded and equipped with increasingly modern equipment.  Taking into account its continued growth, Ventosa's S. Mamede Winery Cooperative acquired in 2013 the premises where it had started to work, which had been unused for 22 years. This premise was destined for the production of red wines and to a partner branch commercialization linked to wine commercialization and wine tourism.

It is worth mentioning the work of this institution, the technical accompaniment that it provides to its members, and which has recently also been planted with new vineyards, having in recent years restructured about 70% of its area of influence. In addition, it has focused on improving the commercialization of its products and its image and on the environmental side. In this respect, it is important to highlight the training given to its members regarding the application of phytopharmaceutical products and the construction of a treatment plant for Residual waters.

Currently, the Cooperative of S. Mamede of Ventosa has 480 associates who produce approximately 25 million kilos of grapes per year, 12% white, which gives rise to about 20 million litres of wine. The grape varieties of these grapes are mostly from portugal, although some are also foreign: Fernão Pires, Arinto, Syrah Nova, and Malvasia, on white grapes; Castelão, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Syrah and Caladoc, in the red grapes.
