About Antónia Adelaide Ferreira:
Born in Régua in 1811, Antónia Adelaide Ferreira assumed leadership of the Ferreira establishment at age 33, already widowed and the mother of two children. As an innovator and entrepreneur, she transformed it into Portugal’s biggest Port Wine company. Her determination left its mark on the history of the Douro, for example by keeping dozens of struggling families from losing their winemaking farms during times of hardship. Also known as “Ferreirinha”, Antónia was nicknamed the “mother of the poor” for her extensive social work, including the construction of hospitals in several of the region’s cities.
