History

Makro, founded in Amsterdam in 1968, is a chain of wholesale stores. Owned by the German Metro Group, Makro offers both food and non-food products to its members, who are usually businesses. Since founding, Makro has grown, opening stores all over Europe and the world along the way.

Since the group has 47 stores in the Iberian Peninsula, it is not surprising that it chose to produce wines in cooperation with the largest producers in the Portuguese Vinho Verde and Alentejo regions. Its focus on private label wines allows Makro to export these special selections to the markets where the group has a presence. Spain, France, Poland, Ukraine, Greece, the United Kingdom, Turkey, and Japan are just some of the markets where Makro exports its delicious range of Portuguese wines.

    The Vinho Verde region is located in the northernmost reaches of Portugal, on the western coast. This region is known for its young wines, which are released within six months of the harvest of the grapes. This allows for the freshest characteristics of the grapes to make it to the final product.

    The Alentejo region is located in the southern corner of Portugal, also on the western coast. Known as the breadbasket of the country, this fertile region is full of plains with rich soil that is perfect for the production of fine wines.
