The roots of the Guedes family on Quinta da Aveleda in the heart of the Vinho Verde region go back deep into the 17th century. Fertile valleys in lush, rich green stretch far into this area between Minho and Douro. The estate itself is surrounded by ancient trees, ponds covered with water lilies and enchanted paths. A lot of rain touches the overgrown landscape in which the lush vineyards of the Guedes family are located - an important part of the family identity for a long time. Spicy, fresh grape varieties such as Alvarinho and Loureiro ripen in this Garden of Eden. Sonorous names and expressive grapes that can only come from here. These conditions are the basis for the gently sparkling, refreshing Vinho Verde wines. Under the sonorous name of the fertile vineyard "Casal Garcia", Aveleda has made these wines known worldwide for their lightness. In 1939, the young French oenologist Eugène Hélisse was on his way home from the grape harvest in the Douro Valley to Porto. When he saw the Quinta da Aveleda vineyards, he decided to end his trip. He spoke to the then owner Roberto Guedes and was actually able to convince him to hire him as a probationary cellar master. After a year, his baptism of fire took place with the wine barrel tasting - and it was a complete success. The brilliant color and crisp freshness became synonymous with Aveleda wines. The lace cloth with which he wiped the drops from the bottle still adorns the label today.
