For five generations the Pato family has been dedicated to making wines in Bairrada.
The common philosophy to all generations is the focus on innovation of viticulture and enology in each crop, a relentless search for the perfection of our wines based on grape variety - our diva!
Passionate for the wine and the traditional indigenous grape varieties, I started a project in 2001 working on a total of 12 hectares of vineyards scattered in various regions of Bairrada and Dão.
From the study of differences in soil, microclimates, sun exposure, age of the vine, planting density, pruning and varied works of viticulture ... I feel that today I am privileged to have created a knowledge base that allows me to understand the wonderful puzzle that our region offers.
We are concerned with creating balanced wines with no additional components (no covering up), emphasizing the character of each vineyard.
We create wines of different styles, white, red and some lightly sparkling traditional method wines to be enjoyed with a variety of food.
