Adega Quinta do Francês

Born in France, descendant of an Italian family with a tradition in wine-making, Patrick Agostini became a Pathologist and also studied Viticulture and Oenology near Bordeaux.
Aged 33, together with his Portuguese wife, he decided to settle in Portugal and bring up his family here. He found a property which fulfilled his dream and satisfied his long-lasting passion to produce excellent wines.
He chose the area of Odelouca, near Silves in the Algarve, because of its schist soil and its southern facing slopes, ideal conditions for the production of excellent wines. The vineyards cover 8.5 hectares and the winery is a 700 square metres modern structure which was completed in 2008. It contains various working areas, organised according to all the latest laws and regulations. Also includes an excellent area for the demonstration, tasting and sale of our wines to the public.
