Quinta Vale de Fornos
the exuberance of a estate with a manor house.
The estate Quinta Vale de Fornos has a rich history in winemaking, with strong ties to Portuguese noble families. This estate was a wedding gift from D. Antónia Ferreira (Ferreirinha) to her daughter when marrying the Azambuja Count the 3rd. Here we may find a XVIII century manor house (that still keeps its original distinctive colour), marble stone lagares and an impressive collection of wood “toneis” (large scale barrels). From the 50 hectares of vinyards, planted in a complex terroir, inbetween the wine regions of Lisboa and Tejo, wines are developed that impress both in terms of quality and character.
