The wine production began in 2008 by winemaker Patrick Agostini, a French man with a passion for wine. This is also where the name, Quinta do Francês which means "French Estate" comes from.

Today they offer guided tours around the winery and wine tasting together with local cheese and cold cuts. We passed by without any reservation and spent a lovely afternoon discovering the grounds and its wine.
