The Quinta was created in 1346 by the Counts of Ourém and was donated to the Convent of Grace of Santarém dos Agostinhos Calçados, still called Quinta da Goucha.
The history of this farm dates back to the 14th century, more specifically to 1346, when its name was still Quinta da Goucha e Atela and its owner was Afonso Telo de Menezes, Count of Ourém and Barcelos, son-in-law of D. Nuno Álvares Pereira. It was later donated to a religious order, the Convent of Graça in Santarém. At the end of the 20th century, the quinta was bought by Isidoro Maria de Oliveira, founder of Salsichas Izidoro.
After the 25 April Revolution in 1974, the farm was occupied for a decade. Years later, it was returned to the previous owners, with the agricultural cooperative already owning a significant part of it. In 2017 it was acquired by its current owners, Ms. Anabela Tereso and her husband Mr. Fernando Vicente, names linked to farming with Valgrupo. It currently has a completely renovated identity, with the entire palace having been restored and its entire range of wines having been reformulated.
Located on the south bank of the Tejo, in the municipality of Alpiarça, it covers 600 hectares. Here we find grape varieties such as: Chardonay, Fernão Pires, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Arinto, Pinot Noir, Trincadeira Preta, Alicante Bouschet, Caladoc, Aragonez, Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Castelão.
The vineyards are cultivated by experienced employees using the latest technology, simple and sustainable oenology in order to obtain balanced and elegant wines, while always respecting the environment.
Over 74 years old, the estate also has a plot called Carvalhita, a "sui-generis" vineyard, which is the result of a cross between Castelão Francês and Trincadeira Preta. With numerous awards and accolades, the wines produced from this plot bring out the best in both varieties.
With a perfect terroir, Quinta da Atela produces unmistakable, elegant wines with the perfect balance to become unforgettable wines.
In addition to an exceptional range of wines, Quinta da Atela also has one of the most beautiful wine tourism spaces in the region, offering visitors unique experiences that combine wine culture with residential tourism and events. The recognition of this effort and dedication culminated in Quinta da Atela being awarded the prize for best wine tourism in the Tejo in 2022.
