Ramos Pinto

Pioneers of the Douro since 1880

Ramos Pinto was founded in 1880 by brothers Adriano and Antonio, bringing a new era of quality wine production to the Douro. Ramos Pinto’s long and distinguished history was further strengthened when the house became part of the Louis Roederer Family in 1990 who share the family history, focus on quality and investment in the future. Today, Adriano and Antonio’s descendants Jorge and Ana Rosas continue their pioneering spirit and search for the highest quality in the Douro as CEO and Master Blender respectively.

By maintaining the balance between innovation and respect for tradition the house continues to go from strength to strength and today is a reference point for quality wines and port in the Douro. Having undertaken a self-production policy, Ramos Pinto only produce wine and port with grapes from its own four estates understanding early that the quality of their wine and port depends on the terroir of the Douro and having total control and deep knowledge of their land.

Quinta do Bom Retiro and Quinta da Urtiga, are located in Cima Corgo, while Quinta dos Bons Ares and Quinta de Ervamoira, are in the Douro Superior. 286 hectares in total are planted to vines. The grapes from Ervamoira give structure and intensity of fruit, while Bom Retiro and Urtiga add complexity and elegance to the blends. It is this knowledge of the terroirs of the Douro, combined with pioneering viticulture, strict production policy and selection of only the best grape varieties that result in the production of world class Tawny and age worthy Vintage Ports, alongside the highest quality wines from the Douro.

Looking to the future, Ramos Pinto is working towards implementing organic farming and increasing biodiversity in the vineyards to improve the bond between nature and the environment and continuing the legacy of producing the highest quality Port and Douro wines.
