The vineyards of Quinta de Chocapalha are situated in the sunny hills of the Lisbon Demarcated Region, located in Alenquer, 45 km northeast of Lisbon. They have been referred to since the XVI century as for its excellent vineyards and wines. Situated in the outskirts of Aldeia Galega, this Estate belonged to Constantino O’Neil since the beginning of the XIX century, and was later donated to Diogo Duff, a Scottish aristocrat ennobled by the King D. João VI with the Tower and Sword Distinction.
The property remained in the Family Duff until 1987 when it was acquired by Alice and Paulo Tavares da Silva who dreamed of a “Family Project” where they could make great quality wine. They started with important improvements to the 45 ha of vineyards including the introduction of new cultivation techniques. Since the beginning, the project has been based on using the best tradition has to offer and combining it with modern knowledge and technology. Only in the vintage of 2000, when the vines reached the desired maturity and quality, it was decided to vinify the best grapes.
Today every member of their family is part of creating and building the spirit of this project.
