The Passadouro vineyard has roots with the Niepoort Port house, where it used to supply grapes for their renowned Quinta do Passadouro Niepoort Vintage Port. Today, winemaker/owner Jorge Serôdio Borges focuses on making top-level dry and unfortified wines from the same vineyard. Borges’s early experience includes working as an oenologist at Niepoort.
Due to the steep grade of the slopes where the vineyards are planted and the narrow width of the terraces, all grapes must be picked by hand. Traditional foot-treading in granite lagares is often employed, which yields fine, silky tannins since the process is so gentle on the grapes.
