Adelaide Project

Following the tradition of social concern that has always been present in the Ferreira Family, namely the initiatives carried out by Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira in the 18th century, Quinta do Vallado has decided to give support to the Associação Via Nova, in Vila Real, which provides shelter and education to orphan and abandoned children.

                                      

For that purpose, whenever the wine Quinta do Vallado Adelaide is produced, 100 Portuguese personalities are invited to acquire two bottles each; The proceeds from this sale are given to Associação Vila Nova. The 1st edition of this project took place with vintage 2005.

 

During the month of December the third edition of the ‘Adelaide Project’ occurred, with the 2008 and 2009 vintages.

The wine Adelaide is produced with grapes exclusively from the oldest parcel in the property (over 100 years old). Named after Dona Antónia, as a tribute,  it is a unique wine, elegant, complex and with great concentration.
