From a man's dream a unique work was born

Since 1972 that our founder Comendador Joaquim Almeida Freitas has fostered the Quinta São Gião brand, having the connection to the production of vinho verde and to the vineyards care as one of the pillars of our activity.

The result of nearly 50 years of our dedication

Because waiting is also an art, for almost half a century Quinta São Gião has implemented a philosophy of viticulture and winemaking that aims to produce the best wines based on the region's natural conditions.

The birthplace of our project where all happens

We have 40 hectares of own vineyards spread over four parcels, all located in the municipality of Guimarães, where we've planted, in an integrated production system, the typical varieties of the region.

The passion mirrored in the future Visitor Center

The legacy of the work initiated by Comendador Joaquim Almeida Freitas is projected into the future with the creation of a unique architectural project in the region comprising a new winery and visitor center.

Quinta São Gião at Prowein 2022

Quinta São Gião will be present at the 2022 edition of Prowein, considered the world’s top trade fair focused in the wine and spirits industry.

Initially scheduled to take place between March 27th and 29th, the event has been postponed to May 15th to 17th. The German city of Düsseldorf will host Prowein once again after the 2020 and 2021 editions were canceled due to the pandemic situation.

This will be a great opportunity for us to make our wines known to importers from all over the world. To point out that the last edition, held in 2019, had 6.900 exhibitors and received around 61.500 visitors.

The most awaited time of the year

Finally arrived! The harvest, the most awaited time in which we reap the fruits of a whole year of work and dedication to the vineyard, has already started at Quinta São Gião.


Pruning 2021

The time for pruning has come and gone. For a few weeks, there was a lot of hustle in preparing our vines for a new vegetative cycle. Now, we continue to take care of each strain on a daily basis towards a desired high quality harvest in a few months.
