CHELEIROS, THE REVIVAL OF A TRADITION!
Arrival in Cheleiros in 2004, the Manz family quickly fell in love with customs and traditions of the village which is helping to rebuilt.
Little by little, its former splendor and dynamism has been recovered, with the dedication of those who really like, and a job that began in Largo da Praça,
near to the river, where also the memories of their elders are.
The Old Primary School, once abandoned, is today the “Lugar do Vinho”, the winery that centralizes all the production of Jampal.
And winepress now welcomes the Manwine store, a permanent exhibition of artefacts from other times, open to the public every day.
Visitors are invited to take a journey through the history of Cheleiros / Carvalhal and, inevitably, the Municipality of Mafra, entering in a "time tunnel" that runs
with fossils and artifacts from earliest times until the evolution and importance of wine in the region .
The buildings retains traces of other times, preserving the local culture and are open to the public, to guided visits and wine tastings
WEEKDAYS: 9H00 ÀS 18H00 | SATURDAY and SUNDAY: 10H00 ÀS 18H00
