FILIPA PATO BAIRRADA SPARKLING WINE 3B - Organic and Biodynamic
As daughter of Luis Pato, the master of the Baga grape in the Bairrada region of Portugal, Filipa was destined to be a winemaker. She stepped out of her father's lengthy shadow in 2001 and makes beautiful wines. Her farming is biodynamic and she picks earlier than most. The vines are between 20 - 85 years old. Skin contact is minimal and the resulting wine is a pale ruby color, light and refreshing.
Utilizing biodynamic farming practices and minimal-intervention winemaking, Filipa and her husband, Belgian sommelier and restaurateur William Wouters, produce Vinhos Autênticos Sem Maquilagem – ‘Authentic Wines Without Makeup.’
This project consists of working on a total of 50 acres of vineyards scattered in various plots throughout Bairrada.
