Founded in 1955 with the name Adega Cooperativa da Região do Moscatel de Setubal, it began its activity in 1958.

The Adega Cooperativa de Palmela is one of the main centres of development of the Municipality that is markedly agricultural and where the vineyard and the wine have, for historical reasons, a fairly large importance. The main wine-growing area lies on the sandy plain that makes up a large part of the Municipality of Palmela.

The Adega Cooperativa de Palmela began its activity with 50 members and with a production that did not exceed 1.5 million litres. Nowadays, production exceeds 8 million litres, and the wine cellar has the capacity to reach 10 million, with 75% being Red Wine, 15% White Wine and 10% Moscatel de Setubal Wine.

It currently has 300 members that have a combined area of 1000 hectares. A substantial part of its production is bottled via 5 automatic lines with a capacity of 10,000 bottles/hour. The Adega Cooperativa de Palmela has, over the years, been updating both its manufacturing and bottling technology, and is today a certified unit (ISO 9001-2000) since June 2003, with the dedication and effort of its 40 employees.

It produces the brands Pedras Negras (white red rose table wine, liqueur wine, grape marc spirit, aged grape marc), Vale dos Barris (white and rose Setubal Peninsula regional wine), Adega de Palmela (DO and red Reserve), Adega de Palmela (DO Fortified Moscatel Wine) and Palma (aged wine spirit).
