Quinta do Piloto is at the family Cardoso at four generations. Its wines are the result of lots chosen from 300 hectares of vineyards in the best terroirs of the region. Vinified by ancestral methods to be exponents of the caste they represent. Quinta do Piloto is situated in the Serra do Louro in Palmela and covers 300 hectares of vineyards.
For four generations the Cardoso family preserves the original cellars and estates, including 130 acres of old vines.
