Through this acquisition, Esporão enriches its portfolio by offering high quality Vinho Verde wines. Quinta do Ameal is a leader among this region’s wines and it shares Esporão’s values: a differentiated and high-quality product, organic production methods and a comprehensive portfolio that includes Wine Tourism.

According to Pedro Araújo, who has been the leader of this project to date and will continue as part of the team, “This was a unique opportunity to reconcile the awareness and recognition of Quinta do Ameal wines – resulting from intensive efforts throughout more than 20 years – with the fantastic potential of a producer whose strength, strategy and philosophy are completely in line with ours, as is the case with Esporão”.

For João Roquette, CEO of Esporão, “this idea grew as we recognised the great quality and potential of the wines produced by Pedro Araújo at Quinta do Ameal, and built trust, friendship and a vision of the future, sharing the desire to make great wines with an identity and sense of place, which also challenged the region’s status quo. Esporão welcomes this legacy, conscious of the trust that was placed in us and with great enthusiasm about the future.”
