Winemaking Process: from selected producers in the Vinho Verde Region, the best grapes of the main grape varieties of the Region are brought to the winemaking center of Aveleda. The grapes are carefully vinified by low pressure pressing, which is followed by alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures. When bottled, the wine is previously filtered and stabilized by the action of the cold. Tasting Notes: presents a citrine colour, a clear and slightly effervescent appearance. It is a smooth and fresh wine with a delicate, fruity, young and balanced aroma. Recommendations: ideal as an aperitif or accompaniment to the meal, especially light dishes of oriental cuisine based on vegetables and white meats, as well as seafood and salads. Due to its freshness it is particularly pleasant in a young and relaxed atmosphere. It should be served at a temperature between 8 and 10ºC. Limited to existing stock. In case the wine you bought is out of stock, we will contact you to propose a different wine, or to return the amount paid. Promotions on wines are not cumulative with other discounts or coupons.
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 (1837-1899), known for his strong enterprising spirit and believed to be the founder of the business as we know it today. His work bore fruit and the quality of the Aveleda wines started to be recognised, as the gold medals won in the international competitions in Berlin (1888) and Paris (1889) attest.
Today the Guedes family still owns 100% of the company, always committed to maintaining this family legacy which spans several generations. The son of Manuel Pedro Guedes, Fernando Guedes da Silva da Fonseca (1871-1946) continued his father’s work, significantly increasing the production capacity at the Estate. He had 7 children and it was Roberto Van-Zeller Guedes (1899-1966) who led the family business, dedicating his whole life to working at Aveleda. The 4th generation includes the six children of Roberto Van-Zeller Guedes: Fernando, Luís, António, Maria Isabel, Maria Helena and Roberto – who today manage the company’s future, together with the following generation: 14 cousins who make up the 5th generation.
