The seventeenth century estate has been held by the same family (now represented by the son of the Countess of Santar, Tereza de Lencastre de Mello) for fifteen generations. Casa de Santar has the largest vineyard area in Dão, with 103 hectares, 90 of which are red and 13 white. Winemaker, Osvaldo Amado, is striving to showcase the indigenous noble grapes of the Dão by achieving the best premium examples of Encruzado and Touriga Nacional with the grapes from the single estate Vinha dos Amores vineyards.
