Quinta Da Pousada is located in the sub region of Vale do Ave in the heart of the Vinho Verde region. The Quinta’s origins date back to 1854 when the Portuguese Monarchy built a ‘stop over’ for their family travelling to and from Oporto. Owned by Jose Areal, Quinta da Pousada has 15 hectares of vineyards. The family has a farming background and today produces hand crafted wines from grapes such as Arinto and Alvarinho typically associated with the Vinho Verde region.
Casa Santos Lima was founded by Joaquim Santos Lima at the turn of the 19th century. Presently the 4th generation of the family oversees this trailblazing estate which consists of vineyards in 5 regions of Portugal. Its ancestral home can be found north of Lisbon in vineyards planted on the gentle slopes tempered by the Atlantic Ocean. The wineries dedication to quality and innovation is unequalled and has resulted in over 1000 medals in prestigious national and international competitions in the last 5 years.
