For several generations the family builds Marques wine. Today derives son Pedro Marques, the winery, who has worked for many years in New Zealand. He put the winery on organic farming. His credo is: nature-friendly organic farming with a lot of work in the vineyard to harvest perfectly ripe and healthy grapes and as little intervention as possible in the cellar. The wines are mainly fermented with indigenous yeasts and ripen slowly on the yeast, which gives the white wines substance and always a fine creaminess.
