CASA DE VILA NOVA


The Lencastre family is of royal Portuguese lineage – descended from Antonio Pinot Garces Mandureira, who was named the First Barão da Varzea do Douro by Portugal’s Queen Maria II on July 16, 1846.

The family’s royal residence is Vila Nova, near the town of Penafiel, close to the eastern border in Portugal’s Vinho Verde wine region -- about a 30 minute drive east from Oporto. The land has been in the family since the 12th Century, and the only remnant of that time is an ivy-covered stone tower, now totally surrounded by Vila Nova (new house), that was built in the 1700’s.  
  
In the late 1970s, the family planted grape vines over 29 acres; mostly the native Portuguese varietals that are most often used in Vinho Verde wines. In 2003, Bernardo Lencastre, who will be the Fifth Baron in the family, took over the property with his siblings, revitalized the vineyards and started making Vinho Verde.  He also spearheaded efforts to make Vila Nova the showplace it is today.

CASA ERMELINDA FREITAS


Founded in 1920 by Deonilde Freitas, and continued by Germana Freitas and later by Ermelinda Freitas, the company has always had a special interest in wine. On the early death of her husband, Manuel João de Freitas, Ermelinda took on the running of the company. In this she was helped by her only child, her daughter Leonor, who although untrained in the art of wine making took charge of the company, consolidating the already firmly female profile of the existing management structure.

The company has, from its very beginnings, made the quality of its vineyards and wines a top priority. When the company first started, wines were produced and sold wholesale and unbranded. It was the current management that decided to take on the challenge that is involved in creating an own brand wine. 1997 was the year of the company's new beginning in wine making, with red wine "Terras do Pó tinto", being the first to be produced and bottled on the premises of the Ermelinda Freitas winery.
