Quinta Pedra da Cancela is the fruit of the Gouveia family’s passion for wine. The wine exploration is a family activity for several generations, in the beginning they delivered their grapes in the Cooperative Winery. In 1999, with the completion of the higher education in Viticulture and Oenology by João Paulo Gouveia, son of João Coelho Gouveia, they decided to create their own wine. The vineyards were restructured,
others were acquired and a modern wine cellar was built with refined technology, all this respecting the culture of the Dão demarcated region. In 2014 the name of the company became Pedra Cancela Vinhos do Dão Lda.
