Adega de Ponte de Lima
The Adega Cooperativa de Ponte de Lima - ACPL - was founded in 1959 and began operating in 1962.
At its headquarters on Rua Conde de Bertiandos, in the town of Ponte de Lima - the oldest town in Portugal -, the Adega currently has an installed capacity of eleven and a half million litres, which corresponds to twenty-three thousand barrels.
The Adega, which represents around 2000 growers, their families and workers, is undoubtedly the most important structure - one might say, the largest firm - in the municipality of Ponte de Lima.
The ACPL is based in the sub-region of Lima, one of the nine sub-regions of the Demarcated Region of Vinho Verde Wines which, due to the natural characteristics of their soil and climate and the varieties grown, produce wines that are very different although they share common characteristics: fruity and fresh with medium alcoholic strength.
The wines of the Adega Cooperativa de Ponte de Lima are made from perfectly ripe grapes of regional varieties. Among white wines, the Loureiro variety is of particular importance due to its magnificent adaptation to the terroir of the Lima valley, making wines highly appreciated for their aroma and for their organoleptic qualities.
