Casa Cadaval’s history dates back over 400 year when the Palace of the Muge housed European royalty. In the beginning of the 19th century the house fell under the Dominion of Casa Cadaval when Dona Maria de Faro (Countess of Odemira) married D. Nuno Álvares Pereira de Melo, to become the first Duke of Cadaval. Today Dona Maria’s granddaughter Countess Teresa Schönborn is now the fifth generation of women to run the estate. The vineyards are influenced by the presence of the former Tagus Delta endowed the soils with maritime minerals that today influence the wines of Casa Cadaval, giving them a unique freshness, minerality and elegance. In addition to managing the vineyards Teresa’s estate also boasts one of the oldest Lusitanian stud farms on the Ibernian Peninsula.
