This is one of the main "green" wine producers in the area. Brandy and cheese are also produced on the estate. The guided tour includes a brief visit to the bottling facility, but the main focus is the lovely gardens. At the end of the tour you get to taste some of the wine and cheese produced on the estate.

Went there with a tour organised by Scenic Australia and it was the most beautiful outing of our tour. The garden is just magic and the history unbelievable . The chapel to the main house dates back to the 16 th century. Still with the family who come at the week ends. The garden is magic and makes a great... More

This is definitely worth a visit. The gardens are just beautiful, along with a goat house, swan, and many terrific photo opportunities. The walk through the gardens is very pleasant, and the afternoon was most enjoyable.

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.
