A pioneer in sustainability and biodiversity issues, Herdade dos Lagos continues to invest in organic farming and has just announced the planting of another 4.5 hectares of vineyards. This area joins the 25 hectares already in production.
“The whole concept of sustainability in the 1000 hectares of farmland located south of Beja, in the municipality of Mértola, makes it possible to enhance the region’s poor land ecosystem by promoting water retention in five dams and reforesting abandoned areas, with the improvement of skeletal soils in their vineyards, olive groves and locust trees that allow all production to be certified organic since 2009”, presents the agricultural company.
Herdade dos Lagos has been in the Zeppenfeld family for over 30 years. Over time, the property has undergone many changes.
Adding to the portfolio of wines with the brands ‘HDL’, ‘Vale de Camelos’ and ‘Atafona’ and the ‘HDL’ and ‘Vale de Camelos’ olive oil is the production of organic locust, honey and sheep for meat and wool.”
