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 »

  • Aveleda Branco Vinho Verde 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy on the nose with a bit of sulfur from bottling but beneath that one finds a little  lime leaf and sweet lime and Meyer lemon fruit. Soft and juicy on entry, this shows off fresh lemon and watermelon rind flavors on the palate with a nice dusty almost floral quality in the mouth leading to a soft fairly short finish.  85pts Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz


  • 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

  • Aveleda Praia, Vinho Verde NV

    Snoothrank:

    Of the Vinho Verdes that I have experienced through my full blooded Portuguese boyfriend and his family, this Praia has quickly grown to become our favorite. Locally we find it in the stores for about 8.99 a bottle. Perfect for a summer day on the boat. Read More

  • Aveleda Fonte Vihno Verde

    Snoothrank:

    87 points.There is a good amount of complexity on the nose of this wine. As is to be expected it is a blend of fruit and flowers with a good amount of minerality, but the layering of these individual components is what is impressive. There are notes of pineapple and crisp Gala apple, tulips and hyacinth, and cold wet stones with the faintest aro... Read More

  • Quinta da Aveleda-Vinho Verde Fonte White Blend Portugal Minho 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Actually, 3.25 stars. Color, this wine has a clean nice light color. On the nose, I am picking some tropical fruits, some floral aromas going on, lime and limon. Midpalate, it is very clean, very crisp, fresh. This wine indeed has a soled character. Finish, not really long, but smooth and nice. This wine is well made and balanced. For $7.99 this... Read More
