The property where Adega Rolan is located is called Quinta da Pertigueira
The ancient locals say that the "Quinta" belonged to a family in the region for many years and was unfortunately lost by a "vine hut" (gourd used to transport wine or water, also called pilgrim gourd). The initial owners went to buy wine from the farmers in the area and didn't pay for it, so from cabin to cabin, they lost the property.
Quinta da Pertigueira initially had about 12 and a half hectares. Before reaching the hands of the Rolán family, it had two other owners and was divided between children and heirs. In 1995 Victor, who fell in love with the region, its microclimate and its valleys, ended up buying a small part of Quinta da Pertigueira and planting his first vineyard there in Portugal.
Gradually and over time, he bought some neighboring land until he managed to gather the current 4 hectares formed by housing, vineyard and winery. It is a property where there are records that attest to the cultivation of vines dating back to 1951, as an engraving was found in an old tank.
