Since 2011, Lima Smith Lda – a partnership between Brazilian entrepreneur Marcelo Lima and former British foreign correspondent Tony Smith – has been investing in the wine regions of northern Portugal and Burgundy, and currently features three prestigious Portuguese quintas in its portfolio: Quinta de Covela, producer
of top-quality whites and rosés, and two emblematic DOC Douro estates producing red wine and Port – the historically important Quinta da Boavista and Quinta das Tecedieras, on the left bank of the Douro River. Within a short period, Lima Smith has relaunched both brands in Portugal and in several international markets, winning the prestigious Viticulture of the Year award in Portugal along the way.
