Casa Américo, one of the most recognized brands of Seacampo, was established by the hands of Américo Seabra, father, who had a dream of producing wine in the land where he was born, Vila Nova de Tazém. The project was followed up by the hands of its children who recovered the property of the XVIII century and built a new wine cellar. Casa Américo currently has 100 hectares of vineyards, the oldest being over 100 years old, planted with the noble grape varieties of the Dão region, located in poor granite terrain between 500 and 600 meters in altitude. The sub-region where they are located, Serra da Estrela, is one of the most important terroirs of Dão where noble wines are produced with a unique freshness and elegance.
