Producer
Born into a family with a long history of wine production, Joao Portugal Ramos was awarded a degree in agronomy by the Institute of Agronomy in Lisbon . After a period of training at the National Viniculture Studies Centre in Dois Portos, in 1980 he embarked on a career as oenologist in the Alentejo region.Benefiting from the gained knowledge, Joao Portugal Ramos established Consulvinus at the end of the 80’s with the aim of attending to the various requests from several producers all over the country. In this way, from 1989 onwards Consulvinus extended its activity beyond the Alentejo region to Ribatejo, Peninsula de Setubal, Dao, Beiras, Estremadura and Douro. It also participated in the development of distinguished Portuguese wines and revitalized regions that were sinking to oblivion by wine-lovers and consumers.The successes achieved and prizes won by these wines throughout his career have brought him national and international acclaim as one of the main figures responsible for the development of Portuguese wines during the last ten years.In 1990 Joao Portugal Ramos started his personal project by planting the first 5 hectares of vineyards in Estremoz, where he lives since 1988.A consequence of the rules regarding investments in vineyards was the problem of transforming grapes. In a region with high potential for producing quality wines as Borba, he decided to present a project with the aim of transforming his own grapes, as well as grapes originating from rented vineyards and grapes bought in the scope of long-term agreements.In these agreements, the technical management of vineyards, from planting to phytosanitary treatments and choosing the date of harvest, is under the responsibility of the viticultural department.The first harvest dates from 1992 and in the following years the wine was produced in rented buildings. In 1997 vinification took place in the new estate for the first time.The construction of the winery in Estremoz, on Monte da Caldeira, began in 1997. The winery was enlarged in 2000, and nowadays comprises 9.000 square meters (vineyards not included), having a modern vinification technology, a bottling area and cellars with approximately 2000 French, American and Portuguese oak barrels used for ageing the wines. At the winery on Monte da Caldeira the modern is harmoniously combined with the best Portuguese wine-growing tradition, and part of the grapes for more sophisticated wines are still foot trodden.This was the location chosen by Joao Portugal Ramos to make his own wines after a long career as consultant oenologist in wine creation in the main wine-growing regions of Portugal.
