And because when the family grows, the home also grows, this was the year when a new warehouse was built in Carregado. An innovative winery that represented a major leap in innovation in the alcoholic beverages industry in Portugal, employing state-of-the-art technology. In Carregado, large cellars with a capacity of 6 million litres, the distillery and the warehouses delighted those who visited them. Carvalho, Ribeiro & Ferreira was an open house.
Visitors were only asked to sign the Golden Book. Leading figures visited the house. The Prime Minister of Southern Rhodesia, the Chief of Protocol of Foreign Affairs, the Secretary of National Defence, the Consulate of Monaco are just a few examples written in the Golden Book.
