Originally founded in the 50’s by the grandparents of the present owners, Vumba is a traditional working farm as once was common in this region.
Located in the parish of São Martinho da Cortiça, Portugal, the company’s estate covers 140 hectares: 60 ha are dedicated to pastures and 80 ha to forests, groves and silvopastures.
We produce the organic cheese Quinta do Carapinhal following ancient traditions and provide quality accomodation in a rural environment.
Vumba’s logo is a leaf of an oak, a deciduous tree with a long gestation period, that always did well in this region. The oak symbolizes our respect for tradition and continuity as well as renewal.
In fact, Vumba is highly influenced by our grandparents’ memory, by their love for this land and by all the great things they’ve done. We make our best to respect and honor this memory in everything we do.
Vumba produces genuinely local, high quality agricultural and food products under the brand Quinta do Carapinhal. Our organic cheese and yogurts are manually processed and most of the raw materials are from our own farm. We also produce an organic extra virgin olive oil.
We take care of our land with much pride and a high respect for both flora and fauna. As result of these practices, Vumba is certified by Sativa as an organic farm.
Vumba’s charming guesthouses and comfortable suites have a unique set of conditions which offer our guests the quiet enjoyment of a true rural experience. Guests can just relax in our swimming pool, lounge in our winery, go for a walk in our mature gardens or take on our hiking trails.
