Quinta da Vegia
Four generations of wine producers help make up the history of the Quinta da Vegia estate. João Pedro Araújo has been responsible for this unique project’s destiny for the last 30 years.
At the end of the 1990s, with the activity’s development and professionalisation, João Pedro Araújo’s family decided to move beyond the Vinhos Verde region and acquire Quinta da Vegia.
By doing so, they expanded production to include red wines.
And if it’s red and from the Dão, the probability of you being in the company of great wine is exceptionally high.
Located near Penalva do Castelo, a town with a thousand-year-old history, the Quinta da Vegia estate currently occupies approximately 20 hectares of vineyards.
Lusitanians, Romans and Arabs passed through here, leaving their mark on the stunning landscapes and the soul of the people from the Beira region.
There are various monuments to be found which have survived the passage of time, as is the case with dolmens and prehistoric shelters.
Terras de Penalva played a vital role in the Christian defence against the Arabs and in protecting the territories north of the Mondego river.
It is also a region replete with magnificent and imponent manor houses, very typical of the romantic period.
The wine will tempt you to visit the Penalva region.
You can put that on your places to see list.

The Casa de Cello is a family-run business that has been operating its vineyards for four decades. One of the owners, João Pedro Araujo, began to professionalise the activity during the 1980s. He reorganised the existing structure to implement the best viticultural and oenological technologies to enhance the expression of the terroirs in the wines.
The Quinta da Vegia estate, located in the Douro region next to Penalva do Castelo, currently spreads out over 20 hectares of vineyard. It was planted according to a careful choice of grape varieties – Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and Tinto Cão, Encruzado and Bical – in order to create the Quinta da Vegia wines.
