Filipa Pato and husband, William Wouters have created an expressive range of wines representing the native grape varietals of the Barriada region. Their philosophy is simple: “create authentic wines without make-up to express the true nature of the vineyards they come from”.
Bairrada is a coastal DOC which borders Vinho Verde, Dão and Lisboa. It has mild and wet winters and hot windy summers. The climatic thermal range, brought about by the Atlantic influence, brings high acidity and freshness to the grapes here.
Filipa and William practice biodynamic viticulture and are undergoing conversion to organic certification. The wine is unfined.
Drink with sheep and goats cheese, dressed salads, and delicate poultry dishes.
