Monte da Penha

This family has been involved in the making of wines of high quality in Portalegre since the beginning of the 20th century, when Joaquim da Cruz Baptista planted the first vines in the “Tapada de Chaves” estate. The success of the project begun by her father inspired his only daughter, Gertrudes, to carry on his legacy and, with great passion, take his work further, becoming known for her knowledge and dedication to the World of Wine.
In 1987 her son, Francisco Fino, her companion in her wine projects, decided to plant a 12 hectare vineyard in his property. This vineyard contributed to the making of both the white and red “Tapada de Chaves” wines.
When the “Tapada de Chaves” estate was sold towards the end of 1998, Francisco Fino, together with his family, decided to start a new project: “Monte da Penha.”
Monte da Penha is a 139 hectare family property, 22 hectares of which are vineyards.
