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

 

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, giving them a high degree of control over viticultural methods at harvest time. The house tends 187 hectares of prime vineyards in the Alto Corgo and Douro Superior areas of the famed Douro region, the mountainous valleys formed by the Douro River and its tributaries.

 

The award-winning 10, and 20 year-old Tawnies are produced at Quinta da Ervamoira and Bom Retiro respectively.

 

Made from Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca and Tinto Cão, his wonderful old tawny is a blend with an average age of 20 years, made from a selection of several lots originating in one of the oldest vineyards in the Douro region – “Quinta do Bom Retiro”.

 

 


The age of this wine has seen its colour change to a warm brick red with hints of gold. The nose is fresh with notes of toffee and fudge over grapefruit, apricot, nut and cocoa aromas, flavours that follow through on to the rich and generous palate.
