Fílipa never fails to deliver an unlikely quotient of animation and sheer character
in this, her “basic” white wine. Her estate production is now supplemented with
grapes bought from esteemed local growers who are happy to adopt Fílipa’s
rigorous viticultural standards.
Passion for the traditional indigenous grape varietals of Bairrada led Filipa Pato to start her own project in 2001. She works a total of 12 hectares of vineyards scattered in various plots throughout the Bairrada appellation of Portugal. 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.’
