2021 Filipa Pato & William Wouters “D.N.M.C” Bical & Arinto, Bairrada

The Pato family, isn’t a very long history, but is certainly a good one. João Pato started the winery in 1970 becoming one of the first in the region after its demarcation. His son Luis Pato took over from the 1980s… But we are here not to talk about the old generation. We are here to talk about Filipa Pato and her husband William Wouters! The ‘crazy’ third generation.

As they like to call it, wines without make up, authentic. They express the true nature of the vineyards from which they come from, focusing on indigenous grapes only. Baga, Bical, Arinto, Cercial and Maria Gomes create soulful wines in micro-climates and aspects ideal for growing exquisite wine grapes with biodymanic viticultural practices.

Why do we like it? 

This D.N.M.C is a blend of Bical and Arinto. From chalky clay midslopes from Jurassic era with eastern orientation to the sun and a very intense Atlantic influence, only 15 km from the ocean. The grapes are handpicked from different vineyards. Whole bunches pressed, fermented with indigenous yeast in temperature-controlled tank. It is aged in 500 litres ‘pipas’, then matured for 2 months in bottle prior to release.
