In 1956, a group of small wine producers founded the Adega Cooperativa de Alcobaça, which was initially hosted in the warehouses of the National Wine Board, today National Wine Museum. In 1993, after having acquired the land of National Institute of Agriculture Research, Adega was moved to the current space and all administrative and warehouses were built.
In the heydays of viticulture of Alcobaça, the collective had 3000 members. Currently, it has 380 members mainly because of the strong investment ir orchards instead of vineyards.
The close collaboration between members, winery and winemaker, as well as the prime location of the vineyards results in the production of excellent wines with international reputation.
Abafado Frade from Adega de Alcobaça had a very long aging in large portuguese oak barrels.With golden amber color, aroma of nuts, honey and hints orange peel. In the mouth it is very unctuous, well-balamced, with very long and pleasant finish.
The long aging in oak gave to this brandy a dark topaz color, with yellowish tones. The aroma is very elegant, with a touch of old wood, very well-balanced. Concentrated on palate, intensive, with a long finish.
