The property was originally called Quinta da Carvalha, and was dedicated to a diverse agricultural production: vines, cereal, vegetables, apple and fig trees. There was also a reference to the gathering of livestock, with the total area of land reaching 30 ha.
The quinta was purchased by Real Companhia Velha in 1968, and since then its was transformed into an exclusively wine producing estate.
Since the objective had been to increase wine production levels, it was fundamental to increase the area available for vine plantation. Therefore, in the following years, many smaller neighbouring parcels where purchased, enlarging the property to its current area of 100 ha of which 75 ha are planted with vineyard.
