On the Herdade dos Lagos graze about 1000 Merino sheep .
Sheep were traditionally part of the Herdade and even though the great, clay plastered sheepfold has now given way to the wine store, sheep are an indispensable part of the overall picture.
The shepherd, his wife and their herding dogs live on the farm and take care of the many lambs that are born each year. The wool is sold, before EU bureaucracy cheese was also made but had to be discontinued due to EU regulations.
We work in the revival of traditional craft.
