Our farm is a family estate, and has been producing high quality wines in Alentejo since 1991. Located in Igrejinha, in the Arraiolos municipality, it shares the philosophy of the art of the famous handmade tapestries: the embroidery in the smallest point known, from which emerges a detailed and rigorous design. (Arraiolos Tapestry — Teresa Pacheco Pereira) This is how the wines are born: from each vineyard plot, blend to blend, a composition that is woven in a deep connection with land and nature.
The farm embodies classic Alentejo, with a quaint landscape, diverse ecosystem and traditional culture of the region. The estate, inserted in the demarcated region of Alentejo (DOC), stretches over 800ha, consisting of 50ha of vineyards, a 40ha walnut orchard and a vast area of cork forest, where sheep and deer graze freely. The rich biodiversity includes an olive grove, a lake and other animals such as deers, ducks, hares and rabbits.
The philosophy is to apply minimal intervention, and allow the natural environment to ensure that varieties can reach their full potential. Located a few meters from the vineyard, the cellar is equipped with the necessary technology to ensure quality. Grapes from each plot are fermented separately and blends are selected according to each wine’s profile.
