List of products by brand Quinta do Vale Meão
In 1877 D. Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, already the owner of the largest agricultural heritage in the Douro, bought a public auction for 300 hectares of virgin land from the Foz Côa VN chamber. Her dream was to build a model exploration out of nothing, realizing in her all the vast experience accumulated throughout her life as a Douro entrepreneur.
This ambitious project was fully carried out between 1887 and 1895. It was the last and most significant achievement of that Lady, who however enjoyed little of her, since she died in 1896.
Since then the farm has always remained in the possession of her descendants. From the 1970s onwards, his great-grandson Francisco Javier de Olazabal took over his management and began a long process of acquiring undivided parts of his family and co-owners, and in 1994 he became, together with his children, the sole owner of the Quinta.
