Quinta do Vale Meão - F. Olazabal & Filhos Lda

Owner F. Olazabal & Filhos Lda

This quinta belonged to Dona Antonia Adelaide Ferreira who bought it in 1877 and was the last great achievement of the legendary Lady of the Douro. The quinta has remained in the family and is today owned by her great-great grandson Fransisco Olazabal Nicolau de Almeida and when he left Ferreira in 1998, he and his son started making port wine from this quinta.
