Come visit the beautiful landscapes of our region Alentejo. The "Herdade da Calada" is a unique farmstead with a beautifull wine-house. Its elegance and beauty are recognized by anyone who has seen it. Some of the best wines in Portugal come from the Alentejo, specifically from this producer. The wine- house was founded in 1854 by descendants of the Dukes of Lancaster, making it one of the oldest in the country. The buildings are impressive,the wine-house dazzling by the size and number of casks it houses. This is where the magic happens, where the wine ages in wood casks, giving it a special flavor that can only be found in this area of Portugal.
