Zé da Leonor Grande
The bottled beauty comes to you from the Tejo region.
“Zé da Leonor” (Leonor’s Zé) was a well-known farmer in the region. He bought the Quinta Nova estate at the beginning of the last century.
Four generations later, his grand- and great-grand-children have recovered the estate located near Riachos, close to Torres Novas.
They also planted a new vineyard and built a modern, totally equipped cellar that now provides “Zé da Leonor” with its own bottled wines. Just like the man they’re named after, the wines possess a strong, unmistakable character that this family wants to honour and perpetuate.
In 2012, the family combined its agricultural experience with a professional and organised structure, allowing for the long-term continuation of the estate’s project – the creation of the Casa Agrícola Rebelo Lopes (Rebelo Lopes Agricultural House).
This wine is brilliant in colour and has an awe-inspiring freshness that’s even more welcomed now that we’re reaching the Spring. The days will become warmer and demand opening a chilled white wine.
Spring will always make us believe in better days. Better and longer days, of course.

“Zé da Leonor” was a farmer known by this name in the region. He acquired the Quinta Nova estate at the beginning of the last century and initiated a project that now culminates in this wine’s production. Today, four generations later, his grand- and great-grandchildren recovered the estate. They planted new vines, built a new cellar and produced a wine with his name – the Zé da Leonor – which, just like him, possesses the character and strong personality we wish to transmit to the following generations.
