It all started when the big landlord and beer magnate José Rovisco Pais donated his Pegões properties to the Lisbon State Hospitals. On these properties the Government implemented a large “colonization” project, donating land to thousands of agricultural workers and directing the plantation of 830 hectares of vineyard. The Cooperative was established on March the 7 th 1958 in order to give technical and logistic support to the “colons”. Part of the support consisted in the reception and processing of their grapes. The first Pegões wines where than born.
