The Bacalhoa's Farm is one of the finest agricultural properties in Portugal still inhabited. It belonged to the Portuguese Royal House, being founded by Prince John of Portugal in the XV century. It was sold in 1528 to D. Brás de Albuquerque, who built this harmonious "house of pleasure" at the pool. In the century. XVI, was part of primogeniture of Dona Maria Mendonça de Albuquerque, known by the nickname of "Cod" (Bacalhoa), originating the name of the property.


A Quinta da Bacalhoa é uma das mais belas propriedades agricolas de Portugal ainda habitadas. Pertenceu à Casa Real Portuguesa, sendo fundada pelo principe D. João de Portugal no séc. XV. Foi vendida em 1528 a D. Brás de Albuquerque, que mandou construir a harmoniosa “casa de prazer”, que se vê na foto. No séc. XVI fazia parte do morgadio de D. Maria Mendonça de Albuquerque, casada com D. Jerónimo Manuel, conhecido pela alcunha de “Bacalhau”. O nome da quinta tem origem no facto de a mulher quando viuva, também ser designada da mesma forma sarcástica. Esteve na família até 1936, quando foi comprada e restaurada pela americana Orlena Scoville, cujo neto se dedicou ao melhoramento da vinha, transformando a quinta num dos melhores produtores de vinho em Portugal. Actualmente a Quinta da Bacalhôa pertence à Fundação Berardo.
