Some of the oldest private wine cellars storing wine from the Colares denominated region were located in the village of Azenhas do Mar. We are familiar with those owned by Luís Augusto and Manuel José Collares, who have been producing and marketing this wine since 1848.
In 1899 João, António and Hermegildo Bernardino da Silva who became known locally as the Chitas family, acquired some of these cellars and established a company called Collares Chitas.
In about 1900, António Bernardino da Silva Chitas set up the Beira Mar cellars which markets Colares wine to this day and is the only one to export it internationally.
