THE GUARANTEE OF A SIGNATURE
"Portugal is a country where different and unique wines are made". It was with this idea in mind and with the usual spirit of adventure that the winemaker João Portugal Ramos headed north. He chose Monção and Melgaço sub-region, in the Vinho Verde region to embrace his new project, where the terroir enables him to produce white wines with distinctive character.
Vinhos Verdes Demarcated Region is the largest Portuguese region in terms of area and one of the largest in Europe. It extends throughout the northwest of Portugal, in the area traditionally known as "Entre-Douro-e-Minho". The natural conditions of this region are ideal to produce excellent white wines, as well as sparkling wines and brandies. Many differentiating factors contribute to the splendor of this unique region: the influence of the Atlantic Ocean and the exposure to sea winds, granite soils, mild climate and high rainfall. All of them bring freshness, balance and elegance to the wines. The Alvarinho variety is the main “star” of this region.
There has been a growing demand for these elegant and engaging wines, both in the Portuguese market and internationally. By releasing his first Alvarinho wine in 2013, and with the guarantee of his signature, João Portugal Ramos reinforces his belief in the diversity and potential of all wine regions in Portugal.
