Since the 19th century

Our wines have been recognized nationally and internationally, which is attested by the numerous awards and distinctions obtained.

In 1874, our wines were presented at an exhibition in London. In 1876, Casa de Paços wine received its first prize at the International Exhibition of the Centenary of the United States of America, which took place in the city of Philadelphia. Twelve years later, it was the wine from Casa do Capitão-mor, or Quinta da Boavista, to win two awards at the Portuguese Wine Exhibition in Berlin: silver and bronze medals.

These are the oldest awards in the current demarcated region of Vinhos Verdes as well as in the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço.

A unique record

More recently, Quinta de Paços has obtained, since the beginning of the 1990s, more than 250 distinctions.

To point out the medals won in the most demanding competitions such as Mundus Vini, AWC Vienna, Sakura, Berliner Wine Trophy, International Wine and Spirits Competition, International Wine Challenge, Decanter World Wine Awards or the Concurso de Portugal. To also highlight relevant ratings in specialist magazines such as Wine Advocate, Wine Enthusiast, Wine & Spirits, Revista de Vinhos, Vinho Grandes Escolhas, among others.

In the book “Wine Opus”, published by DK, Quinta de Paços was one of only four selected producers in the Minho region in the list of the world's largest wine producers.
