Web-site www.quintadapacheca.com

Quinta da Pacheca, one of the best known estates in the Douro region, was also one of the first properties to bottle wine under its own label. It is first mentioned in a document dated April 1738, where is it referred as ‘Pacheca’s’, because it was property of D. Mariana Pacheco Pereira. But it was only in 1903, when Dom José Freire de Serpa Pimentel decided to develop his interest in oenology, that he bought the estate and began to seriously dedicate himself to the risky business of winemaking. Today, a century and many successes later, a brand new generation of the Serpa Pimentel family is at the head of Quinta da Pacheca. Maria, Catarina and José are the young new faces of this family’s old company.
