Monetary collection to help with the various actions that ABC (Algarve Medical Center) has underway, to combat the current pandemic caused by the SARs-CoV19 virus
We support, support with us!
The complex moment in which we live like this appeals to us. Words like, "LOVE!", But so many others invade our thoughts and offer us the strength to fight, to support, to mobilize and act. We verbalize this and so many other words so many times and we try for everything to find hope and faith that soon the world will return to what it was before.
We, the family and all the teams of the two companies HMN and GS, aware of social responsibility and the power of our brands, chose not only to verbalize them, but to act. For this reason, we selected the ABC initiative that is at the forefront in combating this unprecedented tragedy, the COVID-19 pandemic, as it has the capacity to act without the limitations of bureaucratic procedures in our national health system, thus being able to apply the funds and acquire the equipment and material in a much faster way.
Inspired by our great neuroscientist António Damásio, through his book "The strange order of things", we appeal to what is most important at this moment "LOVE".
The Soares family and all the teams of the companies Herdade da Malhadinha Nova and Garrafeira Soares thank you for your contribution.
About the author
Garrafeira Soares started in 1983, when Maria Antónia and João Soares settled with their two children in Albufeira and started the activity of the company with the opening of a mini market that after a few years was restructured giving rise to the first wine cellar.
Nowadays, the second generation, João e Paulo Soares and daughter-in-law Rita Soares, is responsible for the growth of the Garrafeira Soares group, dedicating itself to the retail and wholesale drinks trade and already having 25 stores.
Herdade da Malhadinha Nova is a typical Alentejo family homestead, bought in 1998 by the Soares family: João, Paulo, Rita, João and Maria Antónia Soares. Located in Albernôa, in the heart of Baixo Alentejo, it is a space of freedom, lost in the horizon without limits.
Since 1998, the family's passion and commitment have led to the transformation of long-abandoned lands into soils capable of giving life to genuinely Alentejo products, devoting themselves to the production of high quality wines and the creation of native animals in complete harmony. with Nature and a strict protection regime with a protected designation of origin (DOP) .
