Herdade da Gâmbia

A bird and wine sanctuary.

Client: Sociedade Agrícola Boas Quintas, Lda.

Among a scenario of rare beauty, we find Herdade da Gâmbia, a true ornithological sanctuary. Here, in the middle of the Sado Estuary’s Natural Reserve, several species of birds nest, rest and hibernate. From among them we chose the Stilt (Himantopus himantopus), the Flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus), the Heron (Ardea cinerea), and the Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia) as ambassadors of these red, white, rosé and moscatel wines. The long and elegant features of each bird are so faithfully represented in the illustrations created for these labels, that it’s possible to describe each bird and each wine through them. In a project that seeks harmony between the gracious physiognomy of these birds and the colours of each wine, we produced a bold range, worth collecting.
