Big adventures are born from big dreams

After years of research, tastings, discoveries and adventures world wide, Filipe Barreiros Cardoso fulfils his dream, in Alentejo, of breeding cattle of incomparable quality in Portugal and producing innovative wines and olive oil.

Starting from what the Herdade already had to offer, rich fields for raising cattle and ample and well irrigated plains ideal for wine production, Filipe transformed the 320 hectares into a Portuguese brand of excellency. With his and the Herdade’s history always very present, the family invites each new buyer to take part in this story through the wines, which are produced with meaningful intentions and a continuously evolving narrative in mind. Each label represents a unique moment lived at Herdade Papa Leite, drawn by the local artist Pedro Ramalho.
