Proud to carry our story onto our friends tables.
Located in the heart of Alentejo, in Alter do Chão
Herdade Papa Leite goes back to the 18th century. Landmarks of the past times are still visible today, to remind us of our history.
Filipe Barreiros Cardoso, passionate about the area and the property bought Herdade Papa Leite to fulfil his long time wish of developing products of great quality. This dream was only possible to fulfil due to the tireless support of his family and team. For centuries, the main activity at the Herdade was the cultivation of cereals, olive groves, holm and cork oak. Developing from the foundations already laid out, Filipe reactivated the reproduction of cattle, firstly by reviving the existing, yet scarce, Alentejo cattle and later introducing the Aberdeen-Angus breed.
