To talk about the history of Filipe Palhoça Vinhos is to talk about a love story for the vineyards inherited from parents to children. It all started in 1950, when Filipe Jorge Palhoça founded this family business dedicated to the production of wines in the Setúbal Peninsula with its roots in a small cellar belonging to his father, João Loureiro Palhoça.
From an early age passionate about viticulture, Filipe Palhoça managed to acquire new properties with dedication and work and, for decades, was oriented towards selling at the cellar door. The quality of the wines has won the hearts of loyal customers, making it one of the most respected producers in the region. In 1984, the modern winery was built at Quinta da Invejosa where, in the mid-1990s, the family started bottling wine under its own brand.
Today, Filipe Palhoça Vinhos is one of the most dynamic wine companies in the region of the Setúbal Peninsula, betting on the creation of wines aimed at the modern consumer based on typical grape varieties of the region such as Arinto, Castelão, Fernão Pires, Moscatel Graitão or Moscatel Roxo, to which some of the best international varieties were added like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
The bet on Wine Tourism has been one of the foundations in the strategy of engaging Filipe Palhoça Vinhos and its visitors and consumers. We have a shop open to the public, visits and tastings, as well as a suitable space for the most diverse events.
