Quinta da Folgorosa

Lisboa

The Quinta da Folgorosa is a wine estate dating back to the beginning of the 18th century, located in Dois Portos in the municipality of Torres Vedras, in the Lisboa wine region. A tour of the property transports us back to some of its history, which in the 19th century, was a place where French troops stayed overnight during the invasions and actually both Wellington and Juneau passed through and stayed in Folgorosa. Wellington spoke about the wines here as being the best in the region and this was mainly because the Arinto wines resisted well to shipping and distribution.

Casa da Folgorosa was built in 1910 by the famous architect at the time, Ernesto Korrodi and it went through a series of owners.  In 2019, the farm is acquired by Thomas Lindeborg, a Finn passionate about wines and Portugal, who is changing the concept of the farm's wines to organic farming and adopting more sustainable practices. The Lindeborg group actually own 4 different wineries in the Lisbon, Tejo, and Alentejo regions (Vale do Armo, Vinhos Cortem, Herdade da Cabeceira, and Folgorosa). 

To visit this winery is to learn a little about the history of Portugal and the ancestral practices that respect nature and the environment. Where you can taste young or aging wines showing their Atlantic terroir and always accompanied by regional products. You will be able to walk up to the old windmill and have some spectacular views over the vineyard and have a very professional wine tasting experience which will include local delicacies straight from the winery’s own garden.

Reviews
We had a fabulous visit and tasting at Quinta da Folgorosa. We began by walking to the windmill where we enjoyed a delicious Rosa 2021, while enjoying the beautiful view of the vineyards. Upon our return, we toured where some of the wine varieties were stored and then we went to the balcony overlooking the property and enjoyed a delicious lunch. Daniel served us two red wines and explained to us the role that the Atlantic played in the development of the wine. Our lunch was magnificent from our fresh beet salad to our variety of cheeses and bread. This was a delightful and informative way to spend a morning in Portugal.

We had such a great time at Quinta da Folgorosa! The highlight was the picnic at the mill! The wines were delicious and we enjoyed Pinot Noir, the estate's Border Collie! I highly recommend visiting Quinta da Folgorosa!
