Tive uma experiência agradabilíssima neste Tour. Experiências muito interessantes em Quintas Maravilhosas, o vinho é uma tara! Conheci Guimarães e Braga, belíssimas cidades, fiquei percorrendo as ruas com a sensação de estar no meu antigo país. Fiquei realmente encantada. Obrigada por tudo. Saiba que pode contar com gente profissional aqui, Mariana que nos preparou o Tour teve um atendimento acompanhado de dedicação, muito alem do que havia imaginado.
After the wine experience, a visit to Ponte de Lima is a must-do. The Roman bridge that gave its name to this very ancient and very beautiful town, which received its first charter in 1125 from D. Teresa, the mother of the first king of Portugal. In the centre of a rich farming region where the famous Vinho Verde is produced, the greatest number of manor houses and palaces are to be found.
End of day.
After the visit, we will take you to Quinta da Aveleda. The history of the Quinta da Aveleda estate is lost in time, but there are countless records of this estate after the 16th century. Aveleda is a name which spans several generations. The first records of the sale of bottled wine date back to 1870, with Manuel Pedro Guedes. Aside from its important architectural heritage, the Quinta da Aveleda estate is also appreciated for its parks and gardens, where rare species of trees flourish, some of which have been around for over two hundred years. Distinguished with the international Best of Wine Tourism award, in the "Architecture, Parks and Gardens" category. Currently the Quinta da Aveleda is the largest Vinho Verde exporting company. Here you wil enjoy a guided tour to the Bottling area, Gardens, Old Winery and Tasting Room, with Alvarinho wine and cheese tasting.
