History

Aliança was founded in 1927, over 90 years ago, by 11 associates led by Domingos Silva and Ângelo Neves, in Sangalhos (Anadia´s country), Bairrada region. The company started its activity by exporting to Brasil, África and Europe, representing, nowadays more than 50% of Aliança´s clientele. Aliança is proud of their quality wine, sparkling and brandy, not only available in the Portugal but in the 60 countries they export to. Represented in the main wine regions of the country, Aliança´s main goal is to achieve the highest quality possible. The company has several estates and over 600 ha of land in regions including Alentejo, Dão, Douro, Bairrada and Beiras, exploring around 600 ha of vinyards.
The investment in production areas, with the acquisition of the estates and the modernization of the cellars allowed for the increased level of vinification. It also allowed for the purchase of high quality oak barrels, to be used in the wine aging.

Aliança breathes tradition while incoporating modern techniques.

Aliança has grown and has been developing a modern strategy on several levels, from product to distribution, as well as wine tourism. In 2007, Commandator José Berardo acquired Aliança´s major capital, and made it part of Group Bacalhôa. The social designation of Caves Aliança S.A. was modified to Aliança Vinhos de Portugal S.A.. In March 2008, the institutional image was changed and the brand Aliança Vinhos de Portugal started to be distributed by Viborel Distribuição S.A. in the national market.

Recently Aliança made large investments in wine tourism by remodeling the facilities in Sangalhos. Aliança has an excellent tour circuit that shows the passion and patience that goes into making sparkling wine. Guests can visit the different stages of fermentation in the tunnels, breathe in the smell of oak near the impressive amount of barrels, and end the tour with a stop by the traditional brandy cellars.

Distinctive Aspects

Being "Art, Wine and Passion" the signing of the Group, Aliança sought to associate a cultural component that allows a visitor´s emotional connection with the company and its wines. In this context comes the creation of a unique and distinctive museum, the ALIANÇA UNDERGROUND MUSEUM, developed over the traditional underground galleries of the company.
Opened on April 24, 2010, is the first underground museum, and features nine permanent collections that cover areas such as archeology, ethnography, mineralogy, paleontology, and ceramic tiles.

Integrated in the great universe of the Berardo Collection, these collections are the result of constant care of the collector José Berardo, in immunizing pieces and works of art from multiple sources and species, with both historical and sentimental meanings, which are derived from most varied imaginary, a gathering of people, places, beliefs and cultures, in perfect symbiosis with the wines, sparkling wines and brandies produced by the company.
