The Homestead and Our History
Founded in 1947, Companhia Agrícola da Barrosinha, S. A. has a built heritage that still reflects its past activities, and its historical and cultural relevance.
In addition to tourism, agricultural, forestry and hunting activities, of which the production of wine, cattle, rice, cork, pinecones, and hunting stand out, it also includes two former rice husking/packing and feed factories, the former primary school, a canteen, a sawmill, and the threshing floor.
When touring the homestead, we can still find several Alentejo hills, two chapels (Our Lady of Conception and Lord of the Holy Wounds), several small vegetable gardens (belonging to the residents), a winery, and the village of Barrosinha, where former and current employees still live.
Landscape diversity, responsible for its rich fauna and flora, is largely due to the fact that it is crossed along 8 km by the Sado River, and for including rice paddies, vineyards (100 ha), mountains and dams, each with its own features and particularities.
The wealth of our land.
Barrosinha's wine portfolio is produced exclusively from its own grapes, cultivated in our 100 ha vineyard, planted with traditional varieties of this region such as Periquita, Trincadeira, Fernão Pires and Moscatel, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante Bouschet, Verdelho, Arinto and Antão Vaz.
The work that feeds several generations and marks the history of a land.
In addition to the old rice husking and packaging factories, you can enjoy the extensive rice paddies that find here the ideal conditions for creating a product that is part of the gastronomic base of the region.
A natural journey through traditions that time has not erased.
All over the Homestead there is a built heritage of priceless value, of which we highlight the Chapels of Our Lady of Conception and Lord of the Holy Wounds, living testimonies of centuries-old beliefs and traditions.
