MORE THAN 300 YEARS OF HISTORY
Quinta da Conceição da Lapa was acquired in 1706, by D. Lourenço de Almeida from Captain Bartolomeu Lobo da Gama, for 11 500 cruzados. In a unique location, in the best chosen lands, among the fertile hills to the east of the Serra de Montejunto, a territory that is now part of the Tejo wine region, Quinta da Lapa has about 100 hectares.
D. Lourenço, son of the Count of Avintes, the great reformer and promoter of Quinta da Lapa, was a man of the nobility full of power and influence - member of the State Council, he was governor of the states of Pernambuco and Minas Gerais, at the height of gold panning that so much wealth collected for the Portuguese Crown. With his entrepreneurial vision, he planned to supply the then prosperous and lively city of Lisbon with wines of great quality. To this end, he chose the top of an elevation on his vast property where he built a noble house with its chapel, agricultural outbuildings and a wine cellar.
This reform dates back to 1733, and almost three centuries later, a new winery was built, the vineyards were replanted with traditional indigenous varieties and a selection of international varieties that best coexist with our terroir.
Years later, the house dated 1756 was restored, adapting it to receive guests in a comfortable and luxurious environment, preserving the old architecture and heritage wealth, namely the chapel and the rich tile panel alluding to N. Sra. Da Conceição da Lapa.
As a corollary of all this hard work, Quinta da Lapa wines have been gaining prominence and recognition in recent years, winning national and international awards.
