Sofia and Filipe were still college students when Sofia’s father acquired the nearly 4,000 acre property that is now Herdade do Sobroso. The young couple jointly developed one of the most extensive vineyards in all of Alentejo, Portugal. A dream come true for Sofia and Filipe, the quality of their persistence comes through with every sip.
