History of Ramos Pinto

Founded in 1880 by brothers Adriano and Antonio, this Port house has always had a pioneering spirit. Ramos Pinto is run today by the heirs of these two energetic vintners: Jorge Rosas, Export Director and João Nicolau de Almeida, the enologist who was responsible for officially identifying the five key grape varieties that are best suited to wine production in the Douro region. In 1990 Ramos Pinto became part of the Champagne Louis Roederer group, which shares a similar family owned history and has since enjoyed significant investment and further improvements in quality. Among Port producers, Ramos Pinto enjoys the distinction of holding the largest proportion of vineyards in relation to its production, tending 187 hectares of prime vineyards in the Alto Corgo and Douro Superior areas of the famed Douro region. Year on year this estate produces some of the finest Ports in the Douro, winning two of the four Port Trophies at the Decanter World Wine Awards.
