Senior Winemaker | Quinta da Lagoalva de Cima
Diogo Campilho is the senior winemaker and export manager at Quinta da Lagolva. His affinity with Quinta da Lagoalva is deeply established, by proximity and via familial ties. The Quinta da Lagoalva—an area that was once owned by his grandmother—sits amid the Tangus region, which has been growing wine since the middle ages. Diogo’s interest in oenology came naturally growing up in this region. After attaining a winemaking degree from the University of Trás-os-Montes in Vila Real, Portugal, Diogo interned at an Australian winery under the tutelage of kiwi winemaker for three harvests, learning the New World wine production process before returning to Quinta da Lagoalva with his mentor. Diogo was a panelist at the prestigious wine competition for the Berliner Wine Trophy in Berlin, Germany. He is also a board member of The Regional Wine Commission of the Tagus (CVR Tejo).
