Portugal

Portugal is located in the South West Coast, and the history of this country dates back from more than 900 years. The advantages of the Mediterranean wild climate and the open door of the Atlantic Ocean allowed Portuguese’s to great adventures that took them as far as India, China, East Timor or Brazil. The proximity of the sea and the usual warm weather offer to Portugal the conditions to enjoy outdoor living with the best of this country have to offer. From unique landscapes to long golden beaches, the Portuguese way of living is eating outdoor with traditional meat or grilled fishes, while listening to some “Fado” - a Portuguese traditional music.

Portugal has several wine regions, from north to south, with more than 300 grape varieties. They offer you magnificent landscapes, excellent wines and a singular culture to meet. We cannot talk about Portugal and its wines without referring the famous “Port”, a fortified wine, which makes any Portuguese dinner last until 01:00 or 02:00 AM.
Geographic location and the reduced dimension do not prevent Portugal from being one of the biggest world wine producers. Why not meet this amazing country at the table, tasting our specially selected Portuguese wines?

Aveleda| Região dos Vinhos Verdes

Since 1870, Aveleda has been managed and cared by the same family and has kept the same family surname since that date: Guedes. The history of the Guedes family has always involved the Quinta da Aveleda estate, which has become a part of the family identity. The first wines sold by Aveleda are from 1970, by the hand of Manuel Pedro Guedes, the founder of the business as we know today. He was a man of great vision and devoted himself to the property, planting vines, carrying out works and developing the structures at the Estate; he also built a wine cellar with a capacity for 300 barrels.

His effort was recognized, and the quality of Aveleda Wines can be confirmed by the several gold metals owned in some International contests, like Berlim (1888) and Paris (1889).
