Alentejo, in the south of Portugal, is one of the more arid growing areas in Western Europe. The Mourao sub-region has no highways or airports, and its people were determined to continue a rustic, agrarian existence until the the finalization of the Alqueva Dam in 2004. Today, the "Barragem de Alqueva" is the largest artificial lake in Europe and serves as the irrigation source for Alentejo.

The Aplanta fruit comes from a 83-hectare vineyard that today belongs to, and is farmed by the 74 permanent denizens of the village. Emblematic of the style of the area, Aplanta is proof that “it takes a village!”
