Quinta da Vinha
THE ABANDONED FARM IN PORTUGAL
‘Quinta da Vinha’ is an abandoned wine farm in the north of Portugal. The farm was a small castle built in Art Nouveau or Jugendstil style.
The abandoned ‘Quinta da Vinha’ was a winery that was part of the the Vinho Verde Route in the far northwest of Portugal. Each region produces different types of Vinhos Verdes, here in the Cávado region mostly white wines were produced. Today the region is one of the largest and oldest wine regions in the world. It is home to thousands of producers.
Besides wine making equipment, I also found a big wine cellar. Today the wine barrels are empty and the building is in a terrible state of neglect. I visited the derelict wine farm in 2018. For more abandoned buildings in Portugal, follow this link.
