Quinta do Zimbro
Carrazeda de Ansiães
XPTO FACTOR: The 6 Marias! Mother and daughters, embracing the production of quality grapes and wines from Douro Wine region.
Zimbro is a place, a farm, a winery, an attitude. A project of people, family and friends, and Simplesmente… Vinho! Wise on its own culture, with Port Wine registers since 1875, Quinta do Zimbro is part of the historic vineyards of Douro Region. On our history, Quinta do Zimbro starts on 2003, by our father Manuel Pinto Hespanhol, with a vision of taking further his passion initiated in the 80’s with the applauded Calços do Tanha from Baixo Corgo. As a part of a generation of independent vignerons who empowered the Douro Doc wine, he left some written chapters and a strong will to the generation of 5 daughters! Since 2014 we started the vinification from own grapes only, on a journey of re-discovery of the land expressions. A new cycle on the land and on the grapes, with the challenge of maintaining the consistency and the character of the house but also bringing more freedom and authenticity to the wines we make. Experiment and explore, avoiding add-ons, putting aside make-up and risking more. No big pretensions but with great expectations. Enthusiastic about natural wines, step by step into biologic agriculture, curious about biodiamics and syntropy, our commitment is to learn and to respect our environment. On this Simplesmente Vinho edition we are very happy to present our first artisanal wine, fully produced and bottled at Quinta do Zimbro.
