It has been recognized as a wine tradition village whre high quality wines have been being produced for many years now.

It was during the 12th century that the cistercian monks, who inhabited the nearby convent od Santa Maria de Aguiar, started the cultivation of vineyards and placed all their knowledge and mastery inte production of wines of excellence.

Today, Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo's winery is assumed as the heir of their knowlodge and art. Founded in 1956 by 154 members, it currently has 800.

Every Year, on harvest season, our cellar receives aproximately 8.5 million Kg of grapes obtaining a production of about 6.5 million liters of wine of which about 55% is white and the remaining 45% is red.

Our wine cellar belongs to the demarcated region of "Beira Interior" in the sub-region of Castelo Rodrigo. this sub-regios is characterized by a continental/mediterranean climate with soils where tha shales and sandstones prevail.

In the case of white grapes the predominant varieties are: Síria and Malvasia Fina and in the case of red grapes we have the Marufo, the Rufete, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz.
