Quinta Aveleda

Another family Quinta, or wine estate, delighted us today. This time it was the garden which was the attraction. Everywhere you looked there was something beautiful, such as this tea house, and the deep colours of the hydrangeas.

There were goats in an amazing round stone goat house with a board walk winding up to each level. This is a baby goat:

There were swans and cygnets on one of the ponds:

A rooster and a peacock entertained us:

This is an old family business. The chapel in the grounds is dated 1788.

Desks from the vineyard’s past showed two time periods.

There’s a sense of humour here too:
