The cousins Francisco Ferreira and João Alvares Ribeiro are the owners of the Quinta do Vallado, in the neighbourhood of Regua directly on the Corgo river. Vallado was once counted among the landholdings of the legendary Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, who in the 19th century evinced unimaginable dynamism, extreme vision and entrepreneurial dexterity, building a veritable empire. Her descendants Francisco and João have evidently inherited her shrewd business sense, as well as a deep love of the Douro. They have developed the Quinta do Vallado into one of the most dynamic enterprises on the Douro, built a charming and romantic country hotel next to the winery, and created a cult-wine to honour the great matriarch: Adelaide.
