Our history

House of tillage minhota

Located in the heart of Minho, Casa Lata – Agroturismo is located in a rural property with about 3.6 hectares in Amares, between Braga (12kms) and the National Park of Peneda Gerês (30kms), in the north of Portugal.

History of a house of minhota farming where its people dedicated themselves to the agriculture, the cattle raising, the vineyard and the wine. As milestones of these activities still exist the granary, the wine press, the alembic and numerous agricultural tools. The decor and furnishings respect environments from other times preserving the characteristics of the rural environment and pleasant, proof of this is the living room that once gave way to the cellar, where wine was made in the stone wine press, which still today is in place original.


of tradition

In this environment of tradition associated with rural life, there is now a modern wine cellar where the wine from the grape varieties of the region of green wines between the Cávado and Man rivers is worked.

Nowadays it is José Carlos Costa and his family that give life to this project that became possible after the reconstruction of the house, which in the past belonged to his Uncles Family Pereira Lata, whom we also wish to honor and dedicate this project.
