intro background

Portugal’s geography is a study in contrasts, with both a coastal region subject to Atlantic influence and a more arid, mountainous backcountry. The result is a multitude of grape varieties, and a diverse wine offering.



Founded in 1870, Aveleda is a family-run business with 5 successive generations of the Guedes family continuously at its helm.

A pride shared by family

For 150 years, Aveleda has been one of Portugal’s largest wine producers. Its Vinho Verde has boosted the reputation of the area well beyond the borders of Portugal.

The passion for winemaking, for the sustainable treatment of the surrounding environment, for biodiversity and attention to detail are still the guiding principles of the company. These pillars are at the core of the production of quality wines and creation of renowned brands like Aveleda, Casal Garcia, Adega Velha, Quinta Vale D. Maria, Quinta D'Aguieira and Villa Alvor.

Present in 4 different regions in Portugal, Douro, Vinho Verde, Bairrada and Algarve. The company is the biggest producer and exporter of Vinho Verde in Portugal, Aveleda exports to more than 80 countries all over the world. Despite its explosive growth, the company has made a point of remaining a family business with strong values closely linked to a sustainable growth, putting nature, people and family first. Aveleda combines its passion for wine and its respect for terroir in all its wines that perfectly express the character of each region.
