What services does the rental fee include?

The rental fee includes the space. If you choose any of our events packages we also offer the catering, tables, chairs, linens, tableware, and decoration.

Can I bring my own food or catering service?

Yes, of course. In this case we will only charge for the rental of the space and any other services requested.

Is the rental fee cheaper on any particular day?

Events booked from Monday to Thursday get a discounted rate.

Do you allow more than one event on the same day?

This is not common place but should two events take place on the same day we have the capability to ensure each is completely separated so as to not impose on one another and each party will have the undivided attention of a member of staff so everything runs smoothly.

What is your alcohol policy? Can I bring my own?

Quinta dos Vales has the exclusive right to provide wine. We charge by consumption and at a discounted rate. All other alcohol may be provided by the caterer.

Are there any restrictions we need to know about?

Music and sound licenses are arranged by Quinta dos Vales for each event at the local town council. These licenses have restrictions on the time music can start and must end.

There are two unisex toilets located between the Tasting Room and the Panoramic Terrace and four men's and four ladies' toilets in Cave de Bacchus. All are properly equipped for disabled people.

Quinta dos Vales was designed with disabled people in mind so there are ramps to access most areas. Where there are no ramps we will assist in whatever way necessary.

Providing there is no other event on the day you plan for your wedding rehearsal, this is possible.
