During a recent month in Portugal, we fell in love with their wines which are not really imported into the US. We drove to the winery and took a tour of the facility. The gardens are gorgeous, well manicured with buildings, water, pleasant paths, and we leaned a lot about the history of the family as well as the process.... More

We had a bit of trouble finding it, but it was worth the trip. Absolutely beautiful grounds. Our guide was excellent and very interesting to talk to. I took so many pictures. The Vinho Verde was quite good and very nice with a little plate of cheese. Only down side is they don't serve food and they have so many... More

Vinho Verde is an interesting young wine - I had better ones but the story how they grow make it is interesting and well done during the tour of the winery. The garden itself is lovely mainly in spring.

Like finding out that cans of tuna come from a majestic ocean fish, the solid but humble vinho verde is mass produced on a privately-held property of stunning beauty and history. After a lovely walk on the grounds, it was such a delight to sit in their tasting room, enjoying wine and the fantastic cheese they produce from their own... More

Very nice visit and the staff was very welcoming. Went there on a Sunday and unfortunately I was not able to visit the bottling facility 'cause, naturally, it was closed. Just the gardens it is worth the visit. If you would like a complete tour go on a weekday but do not forget to schedule it. Go to the website.

Fantastic visit which I highly recommend. Blows other vineyard tours or tastings out of the water. Amazing vineyards, gardens, grounds and tasting. We had a very personlized tour (only 4 in our group!) which lasted over an hour and was greeted at the end with a tasting of 2 (bottles!) of the vineyards wine as well as their home-made cheese....

Forget those winetastes where they show you around, give you a glass of their worst wine and called it a tour. At Quinta da Aveleda they did showed us around, and the place is just amazing - I wouldn't mind being the owner of the property at all (although I guess I wouln'd have the goat tower) - but they...

We were scheduled to visit the Quinta late afternoon but upon arrival, they were closing. They still let us enter anyhow and when we saw the vineyard we felt impelled to return the next day. While in the parking lot we met one of the office managers and he offered us a tour the next day. It was absolutely worthwhile... More

We had an amazing time with our tour guide Pedro. He has a joy and love for his job. The gardens were incredible for a vineyard! The follies throughout it are so charming! It was a memory we will not forget. And the wine is so refreshing. They have some of the best verde wines (green/white wine)! It is a... More
