Producer: CARMQuinta do Bispado is located at the foot of the Calabrese Mountains in the municipality with the same name as the mountains. 7 hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of vines, they were planted in the mid-1980s. The traditional Douro grape varieties are grown on south and east facing schists at altitudes of 125 and 170 metres.
The olive oil of the Madeira family was our first discovery in Portugal and by following the trace of the oil, we came into contact with the wines. In 2000, production was still very modest, but since the construction of a new cellar in 2007, CARM wines have acquired a new dynamism.
CARM, which in Portugal has been known for years for the best olive oil in the country, is now also a real reference for wine.Filipe Madeira inherited the energy genes from his father Celso. It is surprising that over the last 20 years they have allowed the family business to grow exponentially and achieve international recognition for the quality of their wines and olive oil.
