Quinta Vale d’Aldeia – located in the Meda region in the heart of the Upper Douro – is a project born of one family’s effort and dedication, with the main aim of producing outstanding wines.
Its location is notable for its rich and complex microclimates, meaning that the generous soil combined with selected grape varieties generate truly unparalleled yield and quality. In addition we use cutting-edge wine-production technology, so making Quinta Vale d’Aldeia one of the leading wine-making benchmarks in the Douro Superior demarcated region.
Quinta Vale d’Aldeia is a quality reference point on the Portuguese and international markets, with a vast selection of wines, ranging from light and aromatic to those selected for more refined and exacting tasting.
Nestled within the Douro Superior demarcated region, the estate currently has about 110 hectares under cultivation, 80 ha of which are vines and the remainder olives. The vines have been planted progressively since 2004, and are grouped according to grape varieties, carefully selected to take account of the nature of the soil, sun exposure, altitude and how we want the grapes to ripen. Wines from this area are young and fresh, their most typical feature being the acidity they acquire during ripening. This is one of the most important qualities for the wines’ development when they are bottled and laid down.
Our mission comprises a firm commitment to the highest quality standards for our products, in order to provide the utmost satisfaction to our customers and friends.
Our aim is to be one of the best and most highly-regarded wine producers.
