A legacy of passion
A History that broke the walls of time. It is said to have originated with Velleda, a wise and ancient prophet that lived in the surroundings. But not even she could have foretold the prosperous future of this place. The first records of the estate date back to the 16th century until the figure of Manoel Pedro Guedes. The earth’s calling made him leave the political life in the capital and dedicate himself exclusively to the estate in Penafiel and its wines.
