Quinta de Chocapalha

Quinta de Chocapalha is located in the surroundings of Aldeia Galega and it spreads over the sunny hills of Alenquer, a Delimited Region in the northwest of Lisboa. Its historical and excellent vineyards are known since the 16th century and have belonged to Diogo Duff, a brave Scottish man who received the "Tower and Sword" insignia, given by King João VI.

Alice and Paulo Tavares da Silva bought the estate in the 1980s and made significant investments in its 45ha of vineyard. The introduction of new cultivation methods has allowed the family to consolidate the quality and reputation of their wines. The well known Sandra Tavares da Silva, their daughter, is in charge of the Oenology Department.
