Quinta do Zimbro
This is a project dating from 2015, based in a beautiful and tranquil part of the Cima Corgo. Ana Hespanhol, one of five sisters, decided to take over her family’s estate in the Douro and breathe new life into the winery. Together with her partner Hugo Mateus, they make estate wines under the Quinta do Zimbro brand, and more experimental wines (some with bought in fruit) under the brand Grau Baumé.
Part of this later range is an orange wine (“Undo”) which seems to be more successful with each passing vintage. The 2020 is really something.
The estate is in organic conversion but not yet certified.
