“THE ESTATE – TRADITION
Quinta do Vallado, established in 1716, is one of the oldest and most famous “Quintas” in the Douro Valley.
It once belonged to the legendary Dona António Adelaide Ferreira, and still belongs to her descendents. It lies on both banks of the Corgo River, a tributary of the Douro river, near its mouth, close to the town of Peso da Régua.
For almost 200 years, Quinta do Vallado´s main activity was the production of Porto wine, that were commercialized by the Ferreira Port House (belonging to the Ferreira family).
Following Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira´s great achievement, her great-grandson Jorge Viterbo Ferreira, and his son Jorge Cabral Ferreira were the main architects of the further development of the Quinta’s vineyards and winery.” reference: Quinta do Vallado
