CASA DE GOUVÃES

Quinta da Avessada

Situated in the demarcated Douro Region, in the vineyard village of Favaios, Quinta da Avessada is an ancient site producing Douro wines. Enoteca Quinta da Avessada is an interactive museum celebrating the history and culture of wine in the Alto Douro region. It shows all the stages of wine production from planting the vine, to the winemaking process, and finally to nectar tasting and wine labeling. This type of museum is the first of its kind in the country as it has multimedia and audiovisual systems together with different ethnographic representations.
Guided tours with wine tasting and regional lunch in the winery are two of the services available. If you are travelling to the Douro Valley in September, you can also join the works of the harvest – it’s a lifetime experience…
