THE DISTILLERY

The Ribeira distillery is one of the most recent distilleries in the Marmelete community, in which the owner has installed two 120-litre boilers. The winery (as distilleries are known in these parts) has metal pilões, as is the rule, but are covered in wood to resemble those used in the past. In this winery it is possible to watch the distillation process of the Medronho paste as it has been done for generations and see how a genuine Medronho Aguardente from the Monchique Mountains is still slowly produced here.
