Quinta Vale D Maria

Quinta Vale D Maria

Cristiano Van Zeller left the family firm (Quinta do Noval) in 1993 to produce his own wine. In 1996 he acquired Quinta do Vale Dona Maria and began an ongoing job of reconstruction and replanting. Early vintages were made and stored at Dirk Niepoort’s quinta.

Many of the mixed grape vineyards are over fifty years old and the Ports are trodden by foot in traditional stone lagares. We sell more of Cristiano's table wine than we do the Port. The Vintage Port is tremendous value, maturing five to ten years before some of the more established names.
