Our winemaker, Vicente Leite de Faria is a 7th generation winemaker, and few people know and make wine like him.
As a child, on the slopes of the Douro Valley, he learned the secrets of wine from his grandfather and devoted his entire academic and professional career in the pursuit of winemaking.
Driven by his passion about wine, Vicente Faria studied oenology in Bordeaux and Portugal. Vicente can combine the best of both worlds and achieve extraordinary wines.
Vicente is also an advocate for a carefully controlled production and believes on only using sustainable farming practices. To Vicente, the main goal should be to produce remarkable wines, but always with a great deal of respect with the tradition and terroir of the world’s oldest demarcated wine region, the Douro.
As our winemaker, Vicente Faria has a history of 200 years behind him and about 250 million bottles of wine produced and sold worldwide, Vicente is a leading producer in Portugal and a internationally recognized winemaker.
