Family & Team


Welcome to the intimate world of Quevedo, a small, family-owned winery where quality isn’t just a goal; it’s a tradition. The Quevedo Family carries a heritage of more than five generations in viticulture and the art of Port Wine production. However, our company was only founded as recently as 1993.

Despite our rich heritage, having reached the three-decade mark, we believe our journey is just beginning. Each day is a new page in our story, as we continue to passionately explore the diverse ways in which wines can be savored and appreciated.

Rooted in the rich soil of Portugal, we are more than winemakers – we are stewards of a legacy built on friendship, family, and the art of crafting exceptional wines.

A Legacy of Viticultural Heritage

The Quevedo family’s lineage in viticulture traces back five generations. The first Quevedo vines were lovingly planted by Abel Gouveia Costa in 1889, in Valongo dos Azeites, S. João da Pesqueira. Abel’s legacy was carried forward by his son, Raul Gouveia Costa, who expanded the family’s wine business. The torch then passed to his son-in-law, João Batista Quevedo, who not only extended the vineyards to new estates but also instilled a profound love for winemaking in his son, Oscar Quevedo.

Beatriz‘s family also had its roots in the Carrazeda district, contributing to the family’s rich viticultural heritage. Quinta da Alegria has been handed down through generations and continues to hold a pivotal position today.

Building the Quevedo Brand

By the end of the 1970′s, Oscar and Beatriz Quevedo decided to start a family at S. João Pesqueira, in the heart of the Douro Valley. Both descended from families with a long history in growing grapes and making Port wines.

Oscar Sr. embarked on a mission to modernize the family’s winemaking facilities, eventually building the initial Quevedo winery, which is currently also undergoing expansion and remodeling.

Over the years, the family has cultivated 100 hectares of vineyards and 25 hectares of organic olive groves, nurturing the land and their legacy. It wasn’t until 1993 that the Quevedo brand was officially founded, marking a new era for the family as they began bottling Port wines under their own label, thanks to Portugal’s entry into the EU in 1986.

The 5th generation joins in

The Quevedo legacy continues with the fifth generation, as Cláudia and Oscar Quevedo (Jr.) followed their parents’ steps into the family business. Their dedication ensures the family tradition lives on, and their children carry the torch into the future. 



Cláudia Quevedo graduated in Enology at the University of Vila Real, in 1998. Since then, she is our guardian of flavor and makes the Port wines at Quevedo. Each bottle is infused with her passion and expertise. With meticulous care, Claudia transforms grapes into masterpieces, honoring our family’s tradition and bringing forth wines that are a true reflection of Porto’s character.

Óscar Jr.

Oscar Quevedo (Jr.), with a background in Economics and having worked in Finance in Switzerland and in Spain, joined the family in 2009. He currently oversees Quevedo’s sales operations across over 40 countries.

Friendship and family aren’t just values for us; they’re the very fabric of Quevedo. We believe that the best wines are born from the best relationships, and that includes you – our extended family of wine enthusiasts.

When you uncork a bottle of Quevedo, you’re not just tasting wine; you’re sipping a moment shared between friends, a celebration of life’s joys and sorrows, and a nod to the enduring bonds that tie us all together. Cheers!
