Leonor Freitas, daughter of Ermelinda Freitas, represents the 4th generation in this family of winemaking tradition and continues the theme of strong female leadership, something that has always been intrinsically linked to the brand and the family history.


Inheriting 60 hectares of vineyards of only two grapes: Castelão and Fernão Pires, situated in Fernando Pó, privileged areas of the region of Palmela, Leonor Freitas with her innovative and differentiator spirit introduced a diversity of varieties as Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Aragonês, Syrah, Alicante Bouschet, among others, the Casa Ermelinda Freitas owns at the moment 445 hectares of vineyards, and makes exploitation of 29 grape varieties.

The Casa Ermelinda lives today one of its greatest expansion periods, reflected in various investments in the vineyards, the winery and the coaching staff always with the headline goal of quality. It has been with this dynamic that the company reached great success, winning several awards at national and international levels with its main brands: Terras do Pó, Dona Ermelinda, Quinta da Mimosa and with its line of monovarietals from Casa Ermelinda Freitas, obtaining more than 700 prizes in total.

The Casa Ermelinda Freitas is dedicated to wine production since 1920.

The 445 hectares of vineyards are situated in Fernando Pó, a privileged area in the region of Palmela.

The soil of these vineyards between the Sado and Tejo is composed of very similar to sand beach sands, and Rico in water, playing an important role in the maturation of the grapes.

The surrounding river breeze cools the vines during the dry summers, offering softness and elegance to the wines.

It is in these sandy soils that grows the Castelão grape, known in the region for Periquita. The varietal characteristic of the Peninsula de Setúbal region makes up 40% of the vineyards of Casa Ermelinda Freitas.

In total there are 29 varietals planted over an area of 445 football fields and 9 million litres of wine produced per year.
