The Vale da Capucha, belonging to the Marques family for several generations, is located in Turcifal, in the area of Torres Vedras, 8 km from the sea, the vineyards have clay-limestone soils with a large number of fossils, the area has a humid climate, mild temperatures, favorable to white wines and delicate and fresh reds. It is today led by Pedro Marques, who in 2009 turned his passion into a life project. His family has always produced wine, but has always focused more on quantity than on quality. With the arrival of Pedro, things change, replacing the old vineyards with white grapes from other areas of Portugal, such as Visionho and Gouveio from Douro, Antão Vaz from Alentejo, Alvarinho from Vinho Verde regiono and even the Viognier of France. In the red grapes the option was by Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Castelão and Syrah.

In June of 2015, it definitively completes the translation of the vines to the Organic Production Mode by SATIVA. The fermentation is made by natural yeasts and sulfites are used in minimal doses. The maximum human effort is applied in the vineyard, to intervene the minimum in the winery. They result in pure, elemental wines that express a place and taste the Atlantic coast of Lisbon for "terroir" wines.
