This company, which was founded in 1920 by Manuel João de Freitas, had its priorities set on the vineyards' and wines' quality. The wine was produced and sold, withouth any branding. The brand itself was invented in 1997. The first wine produced and sold with the branding of Casa Ermelinda Freitas is the "Terras do Pó tinto".

After the founder's early death his wife took over the business with the help and support of her only child. On 10 June 2009 Leonor Freitas was awarded the "Order of Merit for Agriculture, Commerce and Industry" for the work she has carried out in this area, receiving the rank of Commander of Agricultural Merit from His Excellency the President of the Republic of Portugal, Aníbal Cavaco Silva.

Her company started with two grape varieties on a vineyard of 60 ha, but under her regiment the varieties expanded to a much wider range of grape varieties. Nowadays she owns 315 hectares of vineyards of which 60% are planted with the Castelao variety. 30% are dedicated for different red wine grapes such as Aragonês, Alicante Bouschet, Touriga Franca and many more. The final 10% are cultivated with white varieties such as Fernão Pires, Chardonnay, Arinto, Verdelho, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscatel de Setúbal.
