about

The Project

Located in Tabuado, Marco de Canaveses, you can find the beautiful Wine Estate of 50 000 m2 that gives the name to the family produced wines Sapateiro.

Vineyard, fruit trees, plants, animals, a wine cellar and a great view to the city of Marco de Canaveses, makes this Wine Estate a quiet place which people love to visit.

Here we produce high-quality boutique wines made with autochthonous grape varietals, all carefully selected and hand-picked.

All our bottles are individually enumerated – a way to show our small and special production, and the corks guard a surprise for you as well, therefore don’t forget to check them.

At the moment we produce three wines under the brand of Sapateiro: one rosé and two white wines. Those are young, fruit forward and refreshing wines without oak aging on them. 

But we are also working on three new wines: another two whites, one of which aged in oak for more than 18 months, and one red that also aged more than 18 months in French oak.

Silvi and Tiago Soares, a couple of 27 and 28 years old respectively, are responsible for the project, and aim to protect the region’s authenticity, while searching for a modern styles, that will enhance the wine experience to its clientele.

Founder

For the audacious adventurer, the exquisite customer and the person who loves great experiences, I created Sapateiro wines. 

More than a wine, I want to create something that defines you. 

Enjoy them!

Viticulturist

It all started as a hobby and passion for the vineyard.

Initially, I was making wine only for us, but when I realized that people enjoyed it and asking for more of it, I started to devote more time to the vineyard and less on the shoes.

Today this is a small family business, on which I am very proud to know that people from all over the world are appreciating them. Saúde!

In every small business it is important to have somebody who’s versatile and flexible, capable to respond and act in different areas of the business. That’s me! 

From Social Media Manager to the person who is behind the Tapas you eat in our Wine Tasting Experiences, you will see me wearing many hats at Sapateiro, with the goal to help this family develop and grow their business.
