About Us

Aidil [ideeal] Wines was founded in 1984 by a Portuguese entrepreneur from New Jersey who named the business after his wife “LIDIA”, or “AIDIL”, if read backwards. We are a company who always has, and continues to be, committed to seeking out fine wines, ports, liquors, and beers from Portugal. It has been our long term ambition to promote and educate about this beautiful country- its people, its culture, and of course the great “nectar” made from some of the most unique grapes on earth. Wine in this part of the Iberian Peninsula can be traced back to the ancient civilizations such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, and Romans, and is home to the first demarcated wine region, the Douro.  While our passion and knowledge for Portugal remains strong, we have taken this same fervor for Portuguese wines and expanded it to now include wineries from Spain, Italy, Chile, Brazil and continue to pursue products that align with our own company’s values.

Aidil Wines was built on the principles of quality, integrity, education and service delivered through our experienced and passionate sales team.
