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.

Arinto and Loureiro are two of the most widely used white wine grape varieties in Portugal. Together with Trajadura they are used to produce crisp tangy Vinho Verde wines. Citrusy Arinto originated from southern Portugal and spread all over the country. Loureiro, with a disctincitvely herbal nose of freshly cut grass and bay leaves, is grown exclusively in the north. It brings the flavors of peach and apricot to the blend. Trajadura adds body and alcohol as well as crisp citrus and apple flavors. The ideal food pairing for Vinho Verde is seafood: clams, prawns and fish.
