<<< About a century later, in 1978, it was acquired by José Ferreira Cortinhas, the company's current administrator. At that time, still in the aftermath of the April 25 Revolution, an intensive renovation process began, which lasted until 1989. The next steps were quick and effective. After the recovery of the vineyards and the construction of the winery, Casal de Ventozela started selling its wines by selling bulk wine to local storekeepers. A few years later, in 2008, the first Casal de Ventozela monovarietal - Casal de Ventozela Espadeiro 2007 - was bottled, initiating an era of unique wines that represent the enormous potential of the region's grape varieties.
