QUINTA DA VINHA

Located in the Demarcated Region of VINHOS Verdes, in the district of Porto, municipality of Penafiel, parish of URRÔ, “Quinta da Vinha” has existed for more than 250 years and wine production has always been its main activity.

Having passed through several families over the years, “Quinta da Vinha” was acquired in September 1970, by Mr. Antonino Raul da Silva Ferreira and his wife D.ª Jacinta Maria Moura da Silva.

From the date of its acquisition, Mr. Antonino and D.ª Jacinta worked hard on modernizing the vineyards and improving the quality of the wines until May 15, 2011, the date on which Mr. Antonino passed away unexpectedly. .

After this tragic moment, their children, Francisco, Godofredo and Aldina, decide to continue the work of their parents and make the wines produced at “Quinta da Vinha” a reference of quality based on all the knowledge transmitted from Fathers to Children mixed with the new knowledge acquired in the meantime. “Quinta da Vinha” continues to focus on modernizing the winery, improving the quality of the grapes produced, focusing on typical grape varieties of the region, as well as increasing the vineyard area.

Currently, “Quinta da Vinha”  has a vineyard area of ​​around 12 hectares which results in an average annual production of 120,000 bottles of wine, distributed as follows: 86,000 of White Vinho Verde, 16,000 of Red Vinho Verde (Vinho Verde variety) , 14,000 of Vinho Verde Rosé (Espadeiro variety) and 4,000 Vinho Verde White (Alvarinho variety).

Wines from “Quinta da Vinha” are sold on the market under the brand “Cesto de Pedra” and under the brand “GUILHURRO”.

Our wines are sold predominantly in the Portuguese market, but since 2019 we have started selling to Brazil and Germany, which has been growing every year.

At Quinta da Vinha only grape varieties typical of the Vinhos Verdes Demarcated Region are planted.
