Quinta da Cancela

is a 300 year old property, in the family for 6 generations.

In 2007 the 1720 house was restored, with all the comforts of modern life, with 4 suites and a cottageOur "Casa das Bonecas", always respecting its Minho rural matrix.

The project has always been to create the sustainability of the property, sharing the house with guests and defining a strategy of quality and differentiation for the winemaking part, thus allowing to preserve this legacy that awaits the arrival of the next generation.

We are waiting for you

Our production

In only 2,5 Hectares of vineyard, with sustainable production, without the use of herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers and with a VEGAN vinification process, only red grape varieties are produced in a small scale, which originate the HEMJ wines and sparkling, red and rosé wines. 


Since the beginning of our project, we have a strong conviction that Wine and Tourism are complementary and must go hand in hand. We offer several experiences, from a simple visit, through picnics in the vineyard, wine tasting or wine lunches and dinners.


Sustainability is a way of life for us! 
As our project is a legacy for future generations, nothing is more important than to think of those who will come before us and leave the world a little better than we found it!
