Quinta Vale D. Maria

The leading light of the Douro Boys

The fact that wines have been cultivated in the Douro Valley since Roman times hasn’t stopped the Douro Boys from breaking away from tradition. When these five wine growers merged in 2003, revolution rather than tradition was on their mind! They committed to producing wines of the highest quality to their own exacting purity standards – an aim that the Quinta Vale D. Maria estate, the leading light of the movement, has successfully achieved in its 15th generation with Cristiano van Zeller and his daughter Francisca.
