Quinta do Ameal is a small ancient property (1710) of rare natural beauty. Here are created and produced excellent white wines made from a Portuguese grape variety called Loureiro. This reaches its greatest aromatic and tasty expression at this incredible Lima Valley region where we are located.  
Wines produced exclusively from grapes grown organically on our own state, are based on the philosophy of our production and that translates into focus more attention and energy on the vine, thereby producing grapes of high quality and excellence for which, in this way, we achieve unique wines of "terroir", with great personality and character. For us, a great wine should always express a sense of place ... 
Since the beginning of the project, the ever-present spirit, was the creation and specialization in new and different wines made with this noble grape, and today we can clearly say that the Ameal bucked the Loureiro on a map of top wines production in Portugal, because our wines, are regularly considered by the most respected national and foreign critics, among the best white wines in the country. 
In 2000, the Quinta do Ameal, launched the first Loureiro fermented in French oak barrels (Ameal – Escolha), most recently in 2007, the first Loureiro "Late Harvest" (Ameal – Special Harvest) and in 2013 another more new creation will be presented. 
Exported to more than 15 countries, Ameal is on many of the best and most demanding restaurants wine lists in the world, as well as some of the most prestigious shops.
In 2013 will be inaugurated the project desk Ameal Vineyard ECO & Resort. A truly unique space of comfort and contact with nature.
