Like my hostess said everything is around. Nice weather, beautiful sky, great scenery of green vines and trees and water. I went there not on a touristic visit but there were ones. I visited the place and was shown around by a lovely lady manager. I will hopefully start in the future trading some of their gorgeous wines

The guide was very nice and informative throughout the tour. The garden is beautiful with goats in their goat house, duck in their duck house, swan in the pond, and chicken on the ground. We enjoyed the tour very much. The wine tasting with cheese and crackers was also very enjoyable.

Is a place with tradition where people make things with love like the remarkable brands of wine they elaborate. In Quinta da Aveleda you'll find a mini market with their high quality wines, jams, cheese and other products. But the most remarkable thing is the visit you can make to one of the most beauty gardens you'll ever see. You'll... More

2nd time there,mthis time with my mother. The tour in the gardens is great, the people that work there are very nice, the wine and cheese tasting is very good. Luckily they have a shop where you can buy their products. A very nice way to spend a few hours of your holiday 😀!

Worth a trip if you are in the Penafiel area looking for things to do. The tour is more of the grounds than of the winery workings itself, and the tasting works out reasonable value.

I was the only English person on this particular tour but that proved no issue at all as I was given a one to one tour by a very knowledgeable guide who spoke very good English. The gardens were lush.........would love to go back in the spring to see the array of colourful flowers. The buildings are picturesque and the... More

Quinta da Aveleda wine is very good, so I've already knew I had to visit the place. We arrived a little bit late, the last group had already started the visit, but they were very kind and let us join them. The visit is very simple, through the main attractions (the big eucalypt, the guard house, the goats tower, the... More

We did a tour of the vineyard and gardens and the guide did extremely well giving out information in English, Portuguese and Spanish. She explains everything and the gardens of the house are extensive and very interesting. This was followed by a wine tasting with some cheese nibbles. My only slight complaint is that we were only offered 2 wines... More
