Quinta do Sobral


Located in a beautiful area of the Dão region, in the village of Santar, the history of Quinta do Sobral would make for a good book, maybe two, and intends to continue writing new chapters over the next generations to come.

It was for the sake of his daughter that Nelson Simões, founder of Quinta do Sobral and a son of shepherds, emigrated from Germany, to create the winery in 1997. His goal was to plant, manage and harvest some the very best grapes in Portugal, in order to create the wines we know today.

The winery is run and managed now by his daughter, Cristina Simões, and her husband Jorge Loureiro, who are both very passionate winemakers and are proud to continue the legacy that Nelson started many years ago.
