Quinta das Senhoras is located in Marialva, one of the twelve Historical Villages of Portugal, bordering the Coa lands, former border of Leon and Castile until 1297, during the reign of D. Dinis, a territory that has always been part of Lusitania and afterwards of the Portucalense County, on a plateau cut by the old Roman road, which was the route of the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, from Mérida, Conimbriga and Salamanca.
Quinta das Senhoras begins by being a tribute to D. Isabel de Aragão, that passed there on the 23 of June of 1282 on the eve of her marriage with King D.Dinis, on the way to Trancoso, where it was celebrated.
The Quinta das Senhoras has been in existence since the 19th century, thanks to the tenacity of a ladies' dynasty, the first, Mrs. Carolina, a Brazilian emigrant who bought and worked the lands that still constitute it, where a genuine wine of excellence is produced, having also contributed to the birth of the vineyard and wine production in the State of Paraná, Brazil, around a city that adopted the name of Marialva.
