In 1998, Commendator José Berardo became the main shareholder and continued the company's mission, investing in planting new vineyards, modernizing wineries and acquiring new properties, and started a partnership with the Lafitte Rothschild Group in Quinta do Carmo.
In 2007 Bacalhôa became the largest shareholder in the Aliança Vinhos de Portugal, one of the most prestigious producers in the categories of high-quality sparkling wines, spirits and table wines. The following year, the company bought Quinta do Carmo, thus increasing to 1200 ha of vineyards in the group.
Bacalhôa has wineries in the most important regions of Portugal: Alentejo, Península de Setúbal (Azeitão), Lisboa, Bairrada, Dão and Douro. The project implemented in several farms under the theme "Art, Wine, Passion" aims to surprise the most demanding expectations. From the vineyards to the wine, the entire winemaking process is involved in various scenarios that include tradition and modernity, with diverse artistic exhibitions, from painting to sculpture, never forgetting the magnificent natural works.
With a total capacity of 20 million liters, 15,000 oak barrels and an area of vines in production of about 1200 hectares, Bacalhôa Vinhos de Portugal continues its commitment to innovation in the sector, with a view to the creation of wines that provide unique and surprising experiences with high quality and consistency.
