Generations of Grape Perfection: Aleveda Wines

CG Still WhiteThe first records of the sale of bottled wine date back to 1870, with Manuel Pedro Guedes. His work bore fruit and the quality of the Aveleda wines started to be recognized, as the gold medals won in the international competitions in Berlin (1888) and Paris (1889) attest.

 

Aveleda is still managed and cared for 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.

Today, the Guedes family still owns 100 percent of the Portugal-based company, always committed to maintaining this family legacy and wine quality that has spanned its generations.

With a definite Atlantic influence, and the luxury of high altitudes ranging, the 205 hectares of vines at Aveleda are at the heart of the Vinho Verde Demarcated Region, where the Loureiro, Fernão Pires, Alvarinho, Arinto and Trajadura grape varieties come from and in the Bairrada region.

With the restructuring of the vines over the last 15 years, Aveleda’s entire wine philosophy was rethought.

In order to continually promote the sustainability of the biodiversity of the vineyard ecosystem, modern and effective techniques were adopted, which have been harmoniously reconciled with the environment and which foster the diversity of the soils, fauna and flora.
