Other text
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 Serodio Borges focuses on making top-level dry and unfortified wines from the same vineyard. Natural farming is prioritized, and no chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides are used. Irrigation is minimal and performed only by hand, and indigenous yeasts are used for almost all fermentation. Organic certification by Sativa is pending. 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. The wines are all aged in French barriques. Borges”s early experience includes working as an oenologist at Niepoort. Now, in addition to owning Quinta do Passadouro, he is and his wife, Sandra Tavares da Silva (also an oenologist) own the winery Wine & Soul. Sandra, who has the distinction of being the Douro’s first female winemaker, gained her experience at Quinta do Vale D. Maria in the Douro and at her family”s estate of Chocapalha in Estremadura.

Food pairing
Excellent with cheese, chocolate, or on its own as an aperitif or after-dinner drink.

Producer
Quinta do Passadouro is located on the left bank of the Pinhao River in the Douro Valley. The estate is co-owned by the Bohrmann family and Jorge Serodio Borges, whose family has been in the Port wine business for years. As a testament to his pedigree in the industry, Jorge also serves as director and head winemaker.
