The label of our first white wine was inspired by the stone arch that is a landmark from the original Herdade, back in the 18th century. For us, at Herdade Papa Leite, it is not only important to guarantee each wine is a genuine product from its terroir, but as well that it tells the history of the family, its past and future ambitions.
