The warm climate of the Algarve with its over 300 days of sunshine every year, combined with the light breeze from the ocean that washes over it, makes it the perfect choice for a destination wedding, especially in this peaceful corner of paradise, set in the middle of one of Portugal’s most beautiful regions. Quinta dos Vales is a well-established winery, known for its award-winning wine and unique sculptures scattered around the whole estate, guaranteeing the unique scenario for an unforgettable wedding.
Should you decide to have a grand wedding, the combination of the Sculpture Garden and the rustic Panoramic Terrace would be the ideal choice. If the decision is to have a more intimate event, the lovely Sculpture Garden will be the perfect scenery for both the celebration – if the choice is made to get married on site – as well as for the reception. Probably a guarantee that the very special atmosphere will stay in your memory forever.
Having had a lot of experience with organising weddings, Quinta dos Vales has everything that is needed to turn the event into a success. Our on-site team has made sure that all the essentials are covered – from venue rental, food, drinks and catering service to having plenty of space for a band or a DJ setup for the guests to dance the night away.
To make the experience even fuller, it is the perfect opportunity to turn the wedding into a short vacation in the always-sunny Algarve for the guests, or simply choose to spend the wedding night in one of the units located only a few steps away from the party.
As a cherry on top, the winery offers something truly unique – for the wedding couple to create a whole barrel of their own wine, made to their preferences in a place they so carefully chose for their most special day!
This is the ideal location for the welcome cocktail and the ceremony, with our sculptures bringing spots of colour in all the green, and the tall trees and palm trees giving the refreshing shades for some magical moments. Should you opt for a more intimate wedding under the stars, we certainly recommend this area.
Surprise your guests with our ancient well, which is accessible from the Sculpture Garden. Discover deep under the surface huge pumps, installed in the early days of the last century.
TERRAÇO DO PICADEIRO & BBQ AREA
This rustic area full with centenary olive trees, is perfect for a welcome dinner for your guests or a lovely brunch on the day after! The central piece of the terrace is a 2-meter diameter fire pit, with grill capabilities, surrounded by 4 artistic rusty-iron pavilions with bamboo roof, which sits 40-50 people as well as standing tables scattered around the area.
Our BBQ hut adjacent to the Terraço do Picadeiro, might remind you on old fairy tales. Here we offer a coal barbecue with a wood-fired pizza oven and outside seating for 12 – 14 guests, overlooking the pool and the vineyards.
PANORAMIC TERRACE & TASTING ROOM
The name speaks for itself: this venue has a stunning view, overlooking both the small sculpture garden and our vineyard hills. This is the most spacious area for the reception and the after-party, with a roof only supported by columns, providing sunshade without blocking the view. This covered terrace accommodates up to 120 seated guests and is strategically located next to the tasting room, the place where the caterer and his staff will meticulously plate the menu you’ve carefully chosen. The spacious area has plenty of room left for the band or a DJ’s setup, and allows enough floor space for your guests to dance the night away.
Our Quinta Package – the starting point for your reception menu – has everything included which is needed to turn your event into a success. We have made sure that it covered all essentials from space rental to food, drinks and catering service. But don’t worry, nothing is written in stone. If you or your guests have any special wishes or dreams which go beyond the basic package, be welcome. Our catering team is at your disposal. We are prepared to offer numerous upgrade and service options, which are perfectly explained in our catering presentation, to ensure that we turn your celebrations onto a truly unique experience.
Turn your wedding in a short vacation in the always-sunny Algarve for your guests, or simply choose to spend the wedding night in one of our units located only a few steps away from the party.
Between 2 and 6-bedroom villas, 2-bedroom apartments, and villa suites, our accommodation units accommodate up to 100 guests considering no extra beds are placed.
Your guests may take a swim in one of the pools of the estate – some of them for exclusive and others to be used for more than one unit -, play a tennis or paddle tennis match in our well-kept court, have a game of mini-golf on our 9 hole putting green, play some boccia or simply go on a stroll between the vineyards to take in the beauty of nature.
The location of the estate is just a short drive away from all the major points of interest in the Algarve, which makes it convenient to get around and also works perfectly if you want to combine the trip with a bachelor or a bachelorette party.
