In the Douro Superior (Upper Douro), wherethe organic cultures of vines, olive oil and almondscoexist with an endangered fauna, ourfamily affirmed our connection to our landthrough the founding of CARM - Casa AgrícolaRoboredo Madeira. These lands, where ourEstates are situated, continue to give refugeto the golden eagle, the fishing eagle, the griffinand the wild partridge, so typical of theslopes of the Douro Superior and are home toa flora of rock rose, juniper, fennel, rosemaryand sour flowers, among other species.CARM Estate farms or quintas comprise over125 hectares of vineyards, 220 hectares ofolive groves and 60 hectares of almond plantations.

Our olive oils are produced and bottled inour sophisticated ecological mills, wheretechnology meets the tradition provided byancient stone mills.
