Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal’s head-offices are located in the municipality of Bombarral with estates in the municipalities of Bombarral, Cadaval, Alenquer and Torres Vedras, which is to say in the heart of one of the country’s oldest wine regions, the origin of which goes back to the foundation of the Portuguese nation. In fact, in 1153, King D.Afonso Henriques donated large estates - including Bombarral that at the time was only a farm - to the order of St Bernard settled in the Alcobaça Monastery.
