Herdade dos Lagos

For over thirty years, the estate of Herdade dos Lagos has belonged to the German Zeppenfeld family.

The estate is located in the Lower Alentejo and comprises 25 hectares of vineyards planted with Aragonez, Syrah, Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet grape varieties. It also encompasses 80 hectares of olive groves that yield high quality extra virgin olive oil.

Since 2008, the vineyards have been farmed organically in order to produce top quality wines whilst preserving the natural resources.

The wines have won international awards and have been highlighted in a variety of wine magazines.

We have rebuilt the existing traditional buildings and set up tasting-, sales-, storage rooms, office and a barrique-cellar there.
Originally used as sheep stalls, they have been redesigned with indigenous materials by local artisans to meet modern needs.
Nevertheless, we tried to preserve the authenticity of the whole farm.

Herdade dos Lagos is part of the "Portugal Wine Route", which invites you on a route across Portugal to different wineries.
You are welcome to visit us on the farm and taste and buy our wines in our new tasting and sales room.

We also organize for you tastings with local specialties and of course our wines, our olive oil and our honey.

On our country estate in southern Portugal sustainability is more than just a buzzword.
On 1000 acres of land, we realize farming according to the guidelines of the certified organic cultivation, resource-friendly business through the use of renewable energy and active conservation of nature.
