Quinta da Aveleda

Founded in 1671, Aveleda is a family-owned winery with more than 300 years of winemaking tradition. Preserving its familial character, Aveleda has evolved and developed its winemaking by adapting to market demands and investing in new technologies at every step of the way. A short walk through the Quinta da Aveleda estate shows that the search for perfection and love for winemaking is a natural value for the Guedes family. It has been so for over three centuries and we work hard to keep the tradition of innovating, just like our ancestors did. Aveleda has received numerous top ratings by U.S. wine media, as well as awards and medals, year after year, showing its commitment to consistent superb quality. Recently, Wine & Spirit gave Quinta do Aveleda Vinho Verde a 92 score. In 2008, Wine Enthusiast awarded Aveleda with a 90 score (Aveleda 2007 Alvarinho) and an 89 score (Aveleda 2007 Quinta do Aveleda Vinho Verde); in 2007, Wine Spectator gave Aveleda an 88 score (Aveleda 2006 Alvarinho) and an 87 Read more »

  • While there are some tastings I do not look forward to each year, there are others that I can’t wait for. For the most part that means things like Barolo and northern Rhone Syrah, but it also includes the greatest set of value wines I get to sample each year; inexpensive Portuguese red wines!Now, admittedly that’s a pretty broad category of vino...

  • Aveleda Follies Touriga Nacional Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


    Imported by Aveleda Inc. RI Dark and focused on the nose with wonderful floral aromas that recall candied violets coupled with layers of sweet, toasty oak and spicy, plummy fruit bound together with cinnamon and holiday spice. A touch soft on entry, then this really flows slowly across the palate with black fruit, medium plus body and plenty of ... Read More

I wanted to get that information out in front of you while it was still most pertinent, hot, and sunny. Now as we transition to Autumn I want to give you the rundown on the red wines I enjoyed while in Portugal, wines that are well suited to the co... Read More

  • Aveleda Alvarinho 2012


    A little diesel on the nose is layered under aromas of ripe peach with kiwifruit top notes. This shows great cut, a touch of sugar roundness supporting floral almost white peach, candied pink grapefruit and kiwi fruit flavors that lead to a zesty finish that shows a little melon with a gently fading sweetness. 87pts Read More

  • Aveleda Alvarinho 2011


    Candied lime tops an umami laced nose that is quite dusty and polleny.  This is  a little loose on the palate, ripe and peachy and rather lazy in the mouth showing hints of cream and pineapple on the moderately long finish.  84pts Read More

  • Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde 2012


    Fine fruit on the nose, melon with floral accents supporting almost muscat-ey lychee aromas On the palate this is cool and crisp, bright and finely mineral on entry with a nice mid-palate richness that highlights bright yet integrated acids and  fine mineral laced melon and tart apple flavors that show fine persistence on the finish. 87pts Read More

  • I was recently transferred to an office in Fremont, CA, which is like a prison sentence in my work, so how do I entertain myself?  I scout out new wine stores.  And, thanks to Yelp, I found this really cool market that specializes in all things Portugese. It's no secret I love Spanish wine, and my experience with Portugese so far has been that i... Read More

  • Quinta da Aveleda is a beautiful estate located in North of Portugal. They produce the best Vinhos Verdes (Casal Garcia, Quinta da Aveleda, Aveleda Alvarinho, Follies range) but also a wine from Douro, the red Charamba. The Follies range has also red wines from Bairrada region - these are great wines!
