Large areas of pear orchards (Pêra Rocha variety) and vineyards make up Quinta das Cerejeiras. One of oldest Portuguese wine brands in the market - the famous Quinta das Cerejeiras Reserva, D.O.C. Óbidos, comes from this estate.
The vineyards are planted on gentle south-facing slopes of sandy-clay soils.
Planted varieties are:
White – Arinto, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Fernão Pires
Red – Castelão, Touriga Nacional, Syrah and Aragonez.
Quinta das Cerejeiras is located in the centre of the town of Bombarral and holds the house of the company's founder, Abel Pereira da Fonseca.
Designed by the architect Norte Junior is an ex-libris of Bombarral and a good example of the Portuguese architecture from the first half of the 20th century.
This estate has an old chapel dating from the 16th century, covered with 17th century tiles (azulejos). Following the destruction by fire of the town church at the beginning of the 20th century, the chapel served as local church for Bombarral residents during 40 years, by courtesy of its owners.
The old company office premises is where the wine shop is presently located; it still harbours old oak barrels, weighing scales for casks and other museum pieces relating to wine production and farming.
