Since its founding, Caves Primavera went through several stages of development, according to a predefined plan. Starting in confined and limited facilities, the company gave body to the second phase, when moved its premises and opened the first cellar for sparkling wines.
In addition to the expansion of the facilities, in the second phase the company proceeded to the implementation of the first semi-automatic filling line.
In the early 70s the line automation started and further enlargement of the cellar was made. In the 80s the company already had 2 fully automatic lines and a modern packaging system. However, it was in the early 90s that the company had a qualitative leap, with the construction of a wine-making center, which produces all of Bairrada and Beiras wines, as well as white wine for sparkling wine production. The total fermentation capacity is 2.5 million kg of grapes.
In the recent years the company made profound changes to its facilities and to the lay-out with the acquisition of new technologies, both in the winemaking sector, both in the filling and packaging lines. The quality policy that has been implemented, led to the company’s ISO 9001: 2008 certification. This was only possible with the contribution of the human factor, one of the most valuable assets, and with the acquisition of laboratory technology that allowed a strict control of all analytical determinations required by the various target markets, which is a crucial factor in the company’s competitiveness, ensuring creativity combined with modern technology.
In an extremely competitive market, our wines are regularly referenced in journals, domestic and foreign. The awards, in several worldwide competitions, are an important factor that reinforces the image of our products. During the last decades we have tried to convey to the consumer the image of a company that is prepared for the challenges of the global economy, in its 72 years of age, with quality products from various regions.
It is with confidence that Caves Primavera faces the challenge of the coming years, as in the twenty-first century the wine remains, as centuries ago, an integral part of the socio-cultural habits of much of mankind.
