Ramos Pinto

Ramos Pinto

Ramos Pinto was founded in 1880 by Adriano Ramos Pinto and the firm rapidly expanded worldwide and particularly in South America.

Ramos Pinto has had a long and distinguished history which has culminated recently with a take-over by the Louis Roederer Champagne House in 1990, whose healthy investment will see this shipper return to its former position.

In 1997, Casa Ramos Pinto created the Ervamoira Onsite Museum, aimed at environmental, oenological, archaeological and anthropological research of the Vale do Côa.

Today, Frédéric Rouzaud, one of the leaders of the Champagne House, continues the work of five previous generations of the Roederer family.

Ramos Pinto undertook a self-production policy meaning that it only produces wine and Port with grapes from its own estates. They understood that the quality of the wine and Port depends on the earth of the Douro region and therefore took ownership of a number of estates. Their autonomy gives its wines a unique and distinctive characteristic.

Recent developments have included extensive research into which of the Douro's vine varieties perform best in the various grade-A vineyards, and how best to benefit from this. Further innovation has continued in the winemaking processes, though the traditional treading of grapes by foot looks set to continue. With this investment and technical knowledge, Ramos Pinto is without doubt a name to follow.
