The Manz family moved to the quiet village of Cheleiros, West Portugal, in 2004 and quickly fell in love with people and the place. The strong history of wine in the region strongly captivated André Manz that, with the help and advice from locals, decided to try to produce for his personal consumption. Almost forgotten in the newly acquired vineyard, there were about 200 white grape strains, from a variety that neither the young winemakers in the project or the locals of the region could identify. When discovered, the production of the grape – Jampal – was highly discouraged to André. The remaining supply in abundance, and the low profitability of large-scale Jampal – why was almost extinct in the country, explained the advice. But André wants to try anyway: “I do not want to do too much wine, I want to make good one”, he said. The result was surprising: his wine was unlike anything that no one had tried so far, providing an opportunity for unexpected business and the motto for the production of other Portuguese varieties, as well as the ones in vineyards in prime locations: Alto Douro and Palmela.
