The first quinta, or estate, has been in the family since 1670. Today there are 4 quintas totalling 80 hectares: Firvida and Além Tanha, Avidagos, Torrão and Varanda. Traditionally, the grapes were sold to the Port Wine houses but, as from 1996, the first trials began with our own production at Quinta dos Avidagos.
The Firvida, Torrão and Varanda Quintas were already included in the map of the wine-producing country drawn by Baron de Forrester in the nineteenth century.
In 1999, a winery was built using the latest technological advances, enabling the production of high quality wines. At the same time, the old Port Wine warehouse was remodelled and came to be the place where the barrels are aged.
Quinta dos Avidagos now has a wide range that includes Avidagos White, Rosé and Red, Quinta dos Avidagos Reserve White, Rosé and Red, Quinta do Além Tanha Red and Quinta dos Avidagos Grand Reserve Red. And now Port Wine too.
Indigenous grape varieties, such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz for the reds and the Gouveio, Rabigato or Viosinho for the whites, allow us to achieve all the personality and character of the “terroirs” of the Douro.
Bringing together state-of-the-art winemaking with traditional treading in granite winepresses, the goal is to produce wines of excellent quality, with an international profile and with the character of our land. The excellence of the viticulture, the use of traditional varieties, the structural conditions of the region and the human frame of the undertaking have been the secret of our success.
The Douro is truly unique and singular. The wines have received outstanding reviews by the critics when it comes to quality, and sales, both at home and in the export markets, have been increasing.
