Owners of Quinta de Covela, Quinta da Boavista and the brand Quinta das Tecedeiras, the Lima Smith partnership has proven to be one of the most dynamic projects in recent years in the Portuguese wine industry. Its founders – Brazilian Marcelo Lima and Briton Tony Smith – are passionate about the wines produced along the Douro Valley and are firm in their belief of the growing potential of top-quality Portuguese wines in world markets. In just three years, first with the acquisition and relaunch of Covela – winner of the Viticulture of the Year prize in Portugal – followed by the expansion into the Douro D.O.C. with the purchase of Boavista and the long-term lease of Tecedeiras, the partners have created a boutique wine producer. Today, Lima Smith has strong Portuguese roots but also an inherent capacity for internationalization, proven recently by the partners’ announcement they had acquired a participation in Champy, Burgundy’s oldes négociant.
