As farmers, we have taken the role of “carers” of a land and landscape we inherited, with the belief it is the greatest legacy we will be leaving to the future generations, and that Nature, always so generous, gives back such care and dedication.
This philosophy is practiced daily and is inherent to the work spirit of each member of our team.
We are committed to environmentally sustainable practices, always looking to instill environmental respect in each individual we are related to.
The preservation of natural values and the promotion of biodiversity, resorting to sustainable agriculture with respect for the environment and its natural cycles, the practice of recycling and composting, the non-use of synthetic products or GMOs (genetically-modified organisms), resorting whenever possible to renewable energy sources, are some of the examples of these practices.
We are committed to a sustainable rural development through the creation of value and employment in the region, as well as to deepening our insertion in the community and society in general through the promotion of school visits to the property in order to educate children about the agricultural principles and the products that result from it.
In relation to Society and, in particular consumers, we give special emphasis to ethics and transparency by promoting the consumption of healthy products, free from residual pesticides and other chemicals.
We are equally committed to defending cultural practices, representations, expressions, knowledge and skills – as well as associated instruments, crafts and spaces – that we recognize as part of our Cultural Heritage.
‘Fado’ as well as the regional “Canto Alentejano” (Alentejo’s Folklore singing) and the Mediterranean Diet, founded and testified by ancient civilizations, as well as festivities and rituals, cultural landscapes and its products of excellence, amongst which we would highlight the culture of the vine and wine, of the olive oil and bread among others which are part of a legacy we look to preserve and promote.
In this context we look to value the indigenous grape varieties and the identity of the Portuguese wines, resorting to ancestral vinification techniques and a minimalist Oenology practice, which respects its origin and History.
