Quinta de Zimbro

Quinta de Zimbro

Zimbro is a juniper and as you can expect therefore, there is a juniper tree next to the quinta house. The quinta was already marked on Pombal's demarcation in 1758. It was bought of George Warre, the senior partner of Silva & Cosens in 1888 and was his first property. Zimbro was sold to the Pinto Espanyol's by Symington family in 1952 but continue to make the Port from the property.

Quinta de Zimbro Vintages:1875, 1884, 1887, 1890, 1896, 1904*, 1917, 1920, 1922
