After creating seven vintages as enologist in the Real Companhia Velha, I felt the need to start an individual project where I could apply my ideas and where I could control the entire production process. Without compromises, a wine that would reflect my interpretation of the Douro.
In 2001 I bought this quinta and started the Poeira project. A little later, in 2002, I joined Quinta de La Rosa as chief enologist. With the purchase of a quinta in the upper Douro by the Bergqvist family, there emerged a new wine called Passagem, the result of a partnership with the owners.
The Sirga was also a project that began in 2004 from a belief in the vine from which it is made,but principally out of friendship with the owners.
