Filipa Pato Territorio Vivo Baga Tinto 2017
Passion for the traditional indigenous grape varieties of Bairrada, a DOC located just south of Vinho Verde, led Filipa Pato to start a new project in 2001. Her father, Luis, is one of the regional most important producers, and she worked by his side for many years. Today, Filipa farms 12 hectares scattered across the appellation, utilizing biodynamic practices and minimal-intervention winemaking, with her husband, sommelier William Wouters. Together the couple produce this delicious old vine Baga, rich with red berry fruit and notes of rose petals combined with a savory note of black olive, earth and dried tobaccco.
