D. Antónia began her career in the wine industry when she inherited many vineyards from her wealthy family. D. Antónia received her nickname, Ferreirinha for her devotion and care for the working families who farmed her lands and vineyards.
Ferreira fought against the lack of support for local viticulture in the Portuguese government, and later traveled to England to learn the most modern and efficacious techniques to battle the disease and import them back to Portugal. Most of her wine was exported to England, the first major importer of port wine.
She is considered one of the leaders in the history of the Douro valley and an influence in to the continued popularity and success of Portuguese wines. The Ferreirinha boot design allows us to follow D. Antónia footsteps. Explore life’s most entrepreneurial side, with both confidence and resilience. Represents the strength of the Portuguese woman, where the limits doesn´t exist.
The Ferreirinha boot design is a part of Alma Portuguesa new collection (portuguese soul), from which we intend to share the Portuguese heritage, through great Historic figures.
