A while back we met with the founder of Cortes de Cima in his vineyard in Alentejo in Portugal. We had the opportunity to make a short video interview with Hans Kristian who, together with his wife Carrie, is the founder and owner of the winery Cortes de Cima.

Cortes de Cima is one of the leading wine estates in the Alentejo, a wine region an hour or two east of Lisbon that has undergone a revival in the last few decades.

We talk about the challenges of creating a new winery in an unknown wine region and about the challenges in general that the Portuguese wine industry is facing. This is the second part of the Cortes de Cima interviews.

We have previously published an interview with one of Cortes de Cimas winemakers, Hamilton Reis.
